2017 Ohio Women Veterans Conference
Sat, August 12, 2017, 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM EDT
Don’t miss the Ohio Women Veterans Conference, one of the largest gatherings of women veterans in the nation. This year’s conference is August 12, 2017 from 10 am-4pm at The Ohio State University Union in Columbus, Ohio.
Meet your sisters in military service from all eras from WWII to present day Iraq and Afghanistan.
Network with fellow veterans — Ohio is home to 67,000 women veterans — and learn about the benefits, resources and opportunities you have earned with your military service. You will find information about Ohio’s new fast track to jobs and education for veterans, services available locally through 88 County Veterans Service Offices and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs will share information on its Women Veterans programs and benefits.
More importantly, you will be empowered by Ohio women veterans' strength in numbers. We look forward to seeing you in August!
The following breakout sessions will be available at the conference. (You will be asked which session you would like to attend when you register):
Continuing your service in the community: Learn how Ohio Veterans Hall of Fame inductees and leaders of local veterans groups build comradery through service to the community.
Benefits Update: What’s in it for you at different ages and life stages
Networking close to home: How to connect with women veterans, other veterans groups and resources in your part of Ohio.
Managing your Money Military Style: Financial benefits, programs and military retirement.
iRest class: iRest is an expansion of yoga and is based on guided relaxation that leads to a form of meditation. It focuses on finding strengths instead of anxiety or depression. The classes often help with conditions including sleep problems, anxiety, fatigue, chronic pain, and post-traumatic stress.
Maximizing Military skills on your civilian resume: Translating military skills into common business terms and discovering all the new options Ohio has for Veterans and their families looking for employment. Including using military experience toward state licensing and credentials or matching MOS codes to Ohio’s in-demad jobs.
Veteran Employees Resource Groups (VERG): Women veterans share the benefits of having a support and mentoring group for veterans in the workplace.
Entrepreneurship: Fostering veteran businesses by sharing ideas and resources for building or growing your own business.
Aging it’s everybody’s business: What options do Women Veterans have? Establishing Power of Attorney and Living Wills, The Ohio Veterans Home, or care in the community. Learn about your many options and opportunities.
