VMC Women Veterans Center Presents...
Called to a New Cadence
A Symposium for Women Veterans
The Women Veterans Center and Veterans Multiservice Center is hosting our second Women Veterans Symposium on May 21, 2016.
Continuing on from last year’s theme, Veterans United for Empowerment, we move onward with this year’s theme, Called to a New Cadence. Today we are living history for tomorrow’s women Veterans. We will focus on how we are representing ourselves to Veterans and the historical record we are leaving for future women Veterans.
Join us for a day of dynamic speakers as we come together in camaraderie with the spirit of paying it forward as we prepare each other for the next phase of our journey from military to civilian.
The symposium is free of cost and seating is limited so be sure to register early.
We hope you will join us for another fabulous event!
