2017 VIRGINIA WORKFORCE CONFERENCE | Veterans: Closing the Workforce Gap
Virginia Chamber Foundation

Virginia has the fastest-growing veteran labor force in the country, as well as the most veteran-owned small businesses. The 2017 Virginia Workforce Conference will bring together leading educators, employers, human resources managers, veteran groups, and policymakers to explore solutions to providing greater access to in-demand skills. This year’s conference will focus on helping employers do a better job recruiting, hiring, and retaining highly-skilled veterans and translating their training to private sector employment.

The Virginia Values Veterans (V3) Program will also be presenting the 5th Annual V3 Awards in conjunction with the Virginia Chamber of Commerce Annual Workforce Conference. These awards will recognize V3-certified companies and strategic partners for their ongoing commitment to creating and increasing employment opportunities for Veterans in Virginia.

9:00 A.M. - 2:15 P.M.

Co-Hosted by: Virginia Values Veterans V3 Program, VASHRM, and Greater Richmond SHRM
