CIA Releases DAG Year One Report
The CIA Director’s Advisory Group on Women in Leadership (DAG) completed its first full year of implementation in June. The DAG implementation staff recently held an Agency-wide town hall to highlight the progress CIA has made in making the 10 recommendations in the DAG February 2013 Final report a reality and published its Year One Report to the Workforce.
At the town hall, Director John Brennan reemphasized his support for the DAG. “This [initiative] is long overdue and we need to make sure we’re able to pursue this effort with all the energy we can,” Brennan said.
He noted that while the DAG’s mandate was to investigate barriers to women reaching leadership positions, the recommendations serve to advance the career potential of all Agency employees. “[The initiatives] will help us build a healthier workforce, making our Agency an even more effective organization.”
Director Brennan applauded the DAG’s accomplishments during the past year. He also approved the Year One Report, which describes the DAG’s approach to implementation and accomplishments from the first year of the multi-year effort.

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—including senior Agency officers and led 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 ten months. The DAG published its final report in February 2013 and formed a team and several working groups in June 2013 to implement the ten recommendations.
