Participant Biographies:

  • Lieutenant-Colonel Sharlene Harding: Head Coach of the Canadian CISM Women’s Basketball team, Commanding Officer of the Canadian Contingent at NATO SHAPE HQ and the Deputy Canadian National Military Representative to NATO SHAPE HQ, is a seasoned veteran when it comes to sports. After 25 years of playing at the university and international level through CAF, she believes she is a better leader for it. For years she honed time management skills. It is not easy to eat as if you are fueling your body, get enough rest, manage a busy schedule and, climb the “chain of command.” Her sports training has made her mentally tough, resilient to what the CAF has to throw at her. She has had various successful deployments to the far reaches of the world, managed a rewarding career and is currently raising a happy, balanced family. LCol Harding continues to be amused by running into so many random people she’s met during her sports and CAF career in international airports all over the world.
  • Natalie Sambhi: Founder and Executive Director of Verve Research, an independent research collective focussed on the relationship between militaries and societies. Since 2016, she has also been a Research Fellow at the Perth USAsia Centre, where she publishes on Indonesian foreign and defence policy as well as Southeast Asian affairs. Natalie is a PhD scholar at the Strategic and Defence Studies Centre, the Australian National University, focussing on Indonesian military history.

Host Biographies:

  • Stéfanie von Hlatky: Associate Professor of political studies at Queen’s University and the former Director of the Queen’s Centre for International and Defence Policy (CIDP). Her research focuses on NATO, armed forces, military interventions, and defence policy. Fellow with the Canadian Global Affairs Institute.
  • Stephen M. Saideman: Paterson Chair in International Affairs, as well as Director of the Canadian Defence and Security Network – Réseau Canadien Sur La Défense et la Sécurité, and Professor of International Affairs at Carleton University. Fellow with the Canadian Global Affairs Institute.
