As a seasoned sales, marketing and branding professional, Angie Blank dedicates her talents to building and growing causes that she is passionate about. One of those passions is helping veterans and their families find support as they transition out of the military.
For spouses of service members, Angie says it can be especially difficult to find jobs because employers worry about their longevity. However, the rise of remote work in today’s labor market provides great opportunities for them to find jobs.
As a board member for The Warrior Alliance, Angie helps provide guidance on the partnerships the organization forms with companies, non-profits and key influencers who help veterans transition into civilian life. That’s why she says attending America’s Warrior Partnership’s Warrior Community Integration Symposium is so important — to learn more about what other organizations are doing so that the Alliance can collaborate.
Organized by America’s Warrior Partnership, the Warrior Community Integration Symposium is an opportunity to share best practices, find innovative solutions, and form new collaborative partnerships to better help the veterans in their communities address the work challenges they sometimes encounter when making the transition to civilian life.
WorkingNation set up its cameras at the Symposium and interviewed the speakers and attendees about the important issue of helping veterans deal with workforce challenges. You can follow the conversation on our social media under the hashtag #WorkingNationOverheard.
