Hiring Virginia’s Women Veterans

Hiring Virginia’s Women Veterans

Background

The Virginia Women Veteran Program was created and authorized by Governor Ralph Northam and the 2018 General Assembly in recognition that more than 100,000 women veterans now live in the Commonwealth.

Virginia has a unique opportunity to help Veterans gain career employment. Our Commonwealth has one of the youngest Veterans population in the United States, and the fastest growing Veteran labor force in the United States. Moreover, Virginia has the highest per capita of Women Veterans of any state in the U.S. Thousands of new Veterans enter Virginia’s workforce each year, and that number is projected to rise in the coming years.

V3 Certified Employers will be recognized for their Women Veteran Hiring at the upcoming 2020 Virginia Women Veterans Summit. The event will be held June 23-24 2021. Follow the Virginia Women Veterans Program to learn more!

While many employers are unaware of the value Veterans can bring to their workforce, thousands more are seeking to hire Veterans as a part of their workforce but don’t know how.

The Virginia Values Veterans (V3) Program has partnered with the Virginia Women Program to encourage V3 Certified Companies to hire Women Veterans. The V3 Program not only aims to educate and train companies on why it is a good business decision to recruit, hire, train, and retain Veterans, but also to help those committed companies meet their hiring goals. V3 offers free training and certification for employers to help them implement nationally recognized best practice.
