The Admiral Nimitz Foundation Virtual Annual Symposium is committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive community and this year is no different. “A Catalyst for Change: Diversity in World War II”, will explore the diverse groups that played a role during the War in the Pacific and how they overcame adversity abroad and on the home front. We hope that you will join us virtually once again this year, on Friday, September 17th and Saturday, September 18th to experience the opportunity of sharing information, insights, and questions.

Our keynote speaker is former NASA Administrator Charles Bolden. Some sessions include Half American: The Epic Story of Black Americans Fighting World War II at Home and Abroad presented by Dr. Matthew Delmont, and Native Intelligence: American Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian contributions to the Pacific War by Ms. Alexandra Harris along with noted WWII expert Craig Symonds as the moderator.
