Professional Development

Connect with Community

Stability. Success.


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.

Connect with Community

Access. Knowledge.


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.

Connect with Community

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.

Success

“There’s something empowering about a room full of successful women. We are learning to be one voice; when one woman is successful, we are all successful!”
–Kathy, CWC Mentor

“Thank you for focusing your support on female veterans – we are the last group of women to ask for help and support out of all women. We were taught to never to show or admit to any weakness, but need to learn self-care and support. This was a very empowering and motivating event.”
– Army veteran, CWC attendee
