Lead Like a Lady: Empowering Women in Male-Dominated Industries
Gina Osborn is an expert in navigating discord and crisis as she’s lived her childhood dream of becoming an international woman of intrigue. Assigned to a specialized counter-espionage team in the military, Osborn chased Russian spies throughout the European Theater of Operations for the United States Army (ETOUSA), during the post-cold war era. As an FBI agent in Orange County’s Little Saigon, she fought international gangs running money laundering operations and prostitution rings as well as being a part of the FBI’s cyber-terrorist group. She investigated some of the highest-profile cyberattacks in our nation’s history.
Join us as she discusses her early days in the military and FBI where women had to chart their own course up the ranks.
A real-life James Bond in heels, Gina’s story will inspire today’s women leaders.
