Elevating Our Veterans – Education and Engagement



Our Sponsor


This summit is designed to educate business leaders, HR professionals and hiring managers around several facets of employing and engaging veterans in the workplace. We’ll look at the demographics of the veteran workforce in Ohio, and hear from the Ohio Department of Veterans Services about understanding military culture and translating military service into business-speak. We’ll also do a deep dive around reasonable accommodations for veterans in the workplace – what works, and how to get it done. As a part of this conversation we’ll also take a look at everything from TBI and PTS to best-practice higher education accommodations. Last, we’ll focus our attention on elevating those veterans already within your workforce, and explore everything from tax incentives for hiring veterans to college and government programs for everything from housing to education to apprenticeship assistance.
