We have individuals with Master of Arts degrees in Homeland Security and Defense from the Naval Postgraduate School, Center for Homeland Defense and Security, as well as Master of Science degrees in Public Service Management from Johns Hopkins University and Meeting & Event Management from San Diego State University.

Our Vision: About Us


At First Watch Strategies & Events, we are committed to creating a diverse, inclusive, and welcoming environment for all of our clients, employees, vendors, and event attendees. We believe that diversity and inclusion are not only the right things to do, but they also make us a stronger and more innovative company.

We embrace diversity in all its forms, including but not limited to race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, religion, nationality, and disability. We recognize that everyone has unique experiences, perspectives, and strengths, and we strive to create opportunities for all individuals to contribute to our success.

We are committed to creating a culture of inclusion where everyone feels valued, respected, and heard. We will not tolerate discrimination, harassment, or any other behavior that undermines our commitment to diversity and inclusion. We will actively seek out and address any barriers to participation or advancement that may exist within our company or the events we manage.

We believe that diversity and inclusion are not just buzzwords or checkboxes to be ticked off, but rather a fundamental aspect of who we are as a company. We will continue to learn, grow, and evolve in our efforts to be an inclusive and welcoming organization that celebrates and values diversity.

First Watch Strategies is a proud LGBTQ+ and Woman Owned business.
