Our Connect with Community program is a series of one day professional development workshops aimed at improving the resilience and self-sufficiency of women veterans so that they are best equipped to provide stability and success for themselves and their families. CWC workshops bring transitioning active duty women and the women veteran community together with women leaders in business and academia and provide a forum through which attendees gain access to and increase their knowledge of local community, business, and academic resources. We lead interactive sessions on budgeting, networking, interviewing, navigating career change, leadership, resilience, and negotiating salary. Our women warriors build productive relationships with both businesswomen and other women veterans and take part in onsite mentoring. They are also given opportunities for continued virtual mentoring after the day of the workshop so that the improvements continue beyond the first day.
Strategy: We connect. We teach. We empower.
