When Dannielle Pope left the military, this veteran had no idea what to do, where she would work, or how to even begin the process of finding a job. Now, she’s the Director of Innovative Technology for America’s Warrior Partnership.
Dannielle is responsible for overseeing WarriorServe® and the WarriorServe® Partner Portal, which are apps designed to help veterans organizations and developed for AWP. She helps streamline systems or activities that enhance the ability of communities to holistically care for their hometown veterans, military service members, and their families.
“It’s incredibly important to provide strong job opportunities for veterans as they transition into civilian life,” says Dannielle. There are many veteran-serving organizations doing this good work and many gathered in Atlanta for the sixth annual Warrior Community Integration Symposium, which is organized by AWP each year.
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.
