Embracing Equity & Bridging the Gap for Women Veterans’ – Virtual
April 13, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am PDT
What does embracing equity mean to you?
There are approximately 235,000 women who have served in the UK’s armed forces (UK Gov, 2023) and in the US, that number is around 2 million (Veteran Affairs, 2023). Many women veterans face issues accessing support services, care and employment, mainly where services are inadvertently accustomed towards their male counterparts.
Join us as we spotlight four ex-military women to discuss their lived experiences both throughout their military service and civilian life. There are frequent reports of women being unprepared in many aspects of their transition (National Veterans’ Training Institute, 2021). We are going to discuss the transition from military life, explore tips on how to prepare for civilian careers, and how to leverage the power of transferable skills to build a more equitable future for women veterans.
