The Business and Professional Women's Foundation's Joining Forces for Women Veterans Mentorship Program is helping connect women mentors with women veterans.
The BPW Foundation describes the program:
Working with public and private partners, the Business and Professional Women’s Foundation (BPW) is developing the tools, outreach, and capacity to support a long term goal of engaging 100,000 women mentors to connect with women veterans and military spouses. By the end of 2012, 10,000 mentors will be recruited in collaboration with our launch partner, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden have recognized the BPW-led program as part of the national
Joining Forces initiative that mobilizes all sectors of society to give America’s service members and their families the opportunities and support they have earned.
