About the DAG
The DAG was established by former CIA Director David H. Petraeus to help CIA’s leadership continue the advancement of women in the workplace. The team—comprised of senior Agency officers and lead by Secretary Madeleine Albright— reviewed the organizational and societal factors affecting women’s careers and analyzed information provided by nearly half of the CIA’s workforce over the course of 10 months. The DAG published its final report in February 2013 and has formed a team and several working groups to implement the 10 recommendations.
