A series designed to help you grow and thrive.

Coming up:

According to the most recent census, there are currently 20.4 million service members in the United States today. Veterans bring highly desirable skill sets and a valuable dedication to our workforce, and they can, and should, be considered a strategic asset to your business’ development.

Join us at our next Experience Series program to learn how your organization can access, understand and leverage this vital labor pool from a panel of experts, including our moderator Lt. Colonel (Ret.) Kathy Lowrey Gallowitz.
