Erika Collante: Shoot for the Stars

“My dad always said, 'shoot for the stars honey, you can get any job you want.'" Erika Collante, an Intelligence Community officer, can be described as passionate, enthusiastic, humble and extremely authentic.

 

Principal Deputy Director of National Intelligence Dr. Stacey Dixon visited St. Louis this week and spoke with students and industry partners about opportunities within the Intelligence Community.

 

Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines visited Florida International University in Miami, Florida on Sept. 26. The visit, her first to a college campus as DNI, focused on sharing the mission of the Intelligence Community and career opportunities in the IC with FIU students.

 

September 11, 2021 will mark the 20 year anniversary of Al-Qaeda terrorists attacking the United States – a day that changed the course of history.

 

The National Counterterrorism Center honors the lives lost on 9/11 by displaying a series of items recovered after the attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and crash site near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

 

According to the Fiscal Year 2020 Intelligence Community Annual Demographic Report, only 11% of the Intelligence Community identifies as persons with disabilities across all pay grades.

 

That percentage is even smaller, at 7.7% when looking at people with disabilities who serve at the senior executive level - one of the highest positions below political appointees in the federal government.
