CNAS has published reports and commentaries including comprehensive looks at the future of the all-volunteer force and the propensity of youth from military families to serve, examinations of the role of ROTC, assessments of military suicide, and updates on the status of incorporating women into combat arms. In partnership with the Athena Leadership Project, the MVS program has explored how to better support military caregivers and leverage women’s leadership.
Moving forward, the MVS program will continue exploring how to support traditionally under-targeted populations in the Department of Defense, as with its race in the military discussion series. The team will also research how the military can increase propensity to serve, enhance recruiting, improve retention, and optimize support to servicemembers and their families in a changing landscape.
