VOWS is an initiative dedicated to honoring former and current military personnel by facilitating career and business opportunities in the financial services industry. VOWS originated in New York and still maintains it's roots in the New York City area.
To celebrate Women Veterans Day, wVows and AmeriVet Securities are co-hosting a discussion panel to highlight the career success of distinguished women veterans in the financial industry. This is an opportunity to learn about these leaders, their path to executive leadership positions and how they have exceled in their post-military careers.
Register on Eventbrite to come and connect with other veterans, military spouses and corporate leaders, and find out more about the different programs and resources available.
Our intent is to bring together a diverse group of women veterans who have served in both the enlisted and officer ranks, to help ensure all women veterans understand they have the potential to become an executive leader in the corporate world.
This event targets women veterans who are seeking career growth and development, and those who are currently navigating their transition from the military into the corporate workforce.
In addition, we welcome military spouses and supporters at this event, to help us connect women veterans to career opportunities that will help them grow their careers after leaving the service.
