The Federal Bureau of Investigation will hold a symposium in Knoxville this evening in an effort to recruit more women. Currently, only 20% of FBI agents nationwide are women. "The FBI is a family-friendly organization," said Sherri Onks, a 20-year veteran of the bureau. "You can have a good work-life balance. You can be a mom. You can be a special agent." The symposium will feature women serving as bomb technicians, evidence response team leaders and other roles in the FBI. Any woman with a bachelor's degree ages 23 to 36 can apply to be a special agent. The process includes a physical fitness test, background check and drug test. Learn more from WBIR.
