Remarks as delivered by
The Honorable Stephanie O’Sullivan
Principal Deputy Director of National Intelligence

“Disability as an Intelligence Community Mission Need”
First Intelligence Community Disabilities Summit

Thursday, Oct 2, 2014

National Reconnaissance Office Headquarters, Chantilly Va.

Good morning. I love “firsts,” and I’m glad we set this summit up. Thank you, Rita [Sampson, director of Intelligence Community equal employment opportunity and diversity], for inviting me to kick this off. I’m particularly happy that we’re putting some devoted thought into meeting the needs of disabled members of our workforce.

When I’m preparing to speak at events like today’s, I torture our staff by asking them to look back to see if the date marks a historic occasion. Well, we found one today that’s – different – and strangely appropriate. Today marks 55 years since the premier of the sci-fi and fantasy series, “The Twilight Zone.” [laughter]

Stay with me. [laughter]
