Who We Are: Divergent Options is currently pursuing 501(c)(3) status. Divergent Options is not politically aligned in any way nor does Divergent Options conduct political activities.
What We Do: In 1,000 words or less, Divergent Options provides unbiased, dispassionate, candid articles that describe a national security situation, present multiple options to address the situation, and articulate the risk and gain of each option. Please note that while we assess a national security situation and provide options, we never recommend a specific option.
Who We Communicate To: Our intended audience is National Security Practitioners worldwide. We keep our articles short and to the point because we know that Practitioners have a limited amount of time and are likely reading our content on a digital device during a commute, a lunch break, or in-between meetings.
Authors: Some of our authors you may have heard of. Some of our authors you may have never heard of. Some of our authors write using a pseudonym to protect their true identity. We encourage our readers to judge Divergent Options by our content and not our pedigree.
About Our Logo: The black D and white O represent the initials of our name Divergent Options. The colors of black and white represent the way we wish the world was, simple, black and white. The gray background represents the way the world is, a combination of black and white, a place where nothing is simple. The six arrows represent multiple options that could be pursued. The arrows are amber in color to indicate caution, as every option has both risk and gain.
