The Virginia Values Veterans (V3) Program has expanded resources to provided additional support to organizations that wish to support workforce development for Women Veterans. V3 Certified Organizations can earn special designation as a Women Veteran-Friendly Employer by attending a supplemental training. This designation will provide organizations with exclusive access to women veteran talent, tools and unique engagement opportunities with the Virginia Women Veterans Program.
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.
