11th Annual

VOWS Symposium Logo

NOVEMBER 4th & 5th, 2021

Veterans on Wall Street, EY and the Bob Woodruff Foundation will host the 2021 Veterans On Wall Street Symposium on November 4th and 5th, 2021, as a virtual event supporting the mission of Veterans On Wall Street.

  • Veterans on Wall Street (VOWS) is an initiative dedicated to honoring former and current military personnel by facilitating career and business opportunities in the financial services industry.

    • With the help of its strategic charity partner, the Bob Woodruff Foundation, and through a combination of educational initiatives, mentoring, outreach to the military, employee affinity groups, and an annual conference, VOWS promotes career development, support, and retention of veterans throughout the global financial services industry.
  • Our 2021 Symposium will be virtual: We have planned a two-day virtual event providing an opportunity to share relevant content, best practices and insights on Day 1 and an opportunity for veterans, spouses, and service members to meet directly with interested companies on Day 2.
  • This two-day virtual event approach provides national (even international) reach for the content and VOWS partners, creating greater access and value for VOWS partners and the veteran/mil-spouse population we serve.

Company/Industry Presentations

Each company will give a company overview and share what they are doing in support of the milvet and milspouse communities every 15 mins for the first hour so interested candidates can drop in to learn about multiple companies before attending the virtual hiring fair. This will give each candidate the opportunity to learn about up to four companies before they drop in to the virtual hiring booths to talk to reps.


10:00am-2:00pm

Virtual Career Fair

Each company will ensure that at least two representatives are always present in the virtual booth during this time.
