DEF 2017

DEF 2017 will be here soon! The event’s speakers, breakout sessions, and happy hours will show how DEF has matured from a group of frustrated young leaders to a network that is creating real change in the DoD’s culture. We will also get the same rich experience found at every DEF event. Purchase your tickets before September 1!
