The board of directors of the George C. Marshall International Center has selected Jen Easterly, the director of the Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency, to receive its third annual Marshall Award in Ethical Leadership. The award will be presented at the center’s annual gala on April 12 at the Army Navy Country Club in Arlington. 

The award is presented to a recipient who embodies the principles of selfless service, unwavering integrity and visionary leadership exemplified by General Marshall, who was a Nobel Peace Laureate, chief of staff of the U.S. Army, secretary of State and secretary of Defense. Col. Greg Gadson (U.S. Army, Ret.) received the inaugural ethical leadership award in 2022, and former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates received the award in 2023. 

“Throughout her career of distinguished service to our nation, Director Easterly has been a model of ethical leadership in action,” said Marshall Center Chairman Thomas Greenspon. “Her commitment to selfless service, unwavering integrity and especially visionary leadership is making a powerful positive impact on the security of our country. We are proud to confer our third annual George C. Marshall Award in Ethical Leadership to an individual who has lived up to the lofty standard of General Marshall.”  

“I am deeply humbled and honored to be selected for this prestigious award. Learning about General Marshall from an early age, I have consistently strived to demonstrate the values, fidelity, and moral courage that are closely associated with this great leader—from my earliest days as an Army second lieutenant through my service at CISA,” Easterly stated. “General Marshall continues to be a role model and example of ethical leadership, not only for me but for millions of others. I appreciate the work of the George C. Marshall International Center that reminds us of his legacy and urges leaders everywhere to inculcate his character traits in their lives and service. I thank the Marshall Center for this award. 

Proceeds from the gala will be used to support the nonprofit’s activities, including its growing ethical leadership training program. Five-Star Character: The George C. Marshall Ethical Leadership Conference was created to inspire and develop leaders among high school juniors and seniors.
