Date:8/26/2013

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 26, 2013

Swords to Plowshares will host its Inaugural Veteran Employment Strategy Summit on Tuesday August 27th. Employers interested in adding veterans to their company ranks will gather at the Marine’s Memorial Club in downtown San Francisco for the event.

The summit will kick-off with a keynote address by Craig Newmark, founder of Craigslist and Craigconnects and veteran supporter. Swords to Plowshares’ staff will deliver a brief cultural competency training, Combat to Community: Transitioning from Military Service to the Civilian Workforce followed by a panel discussion with employers.

Tuesday, August 27, 2013, 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM
Marines Memorial Club, Crystal Ballroom - 11th Floor
609 Sutter Street, San Francisco, CA 94102
PRE-REGISTRATION REQUIRED

“Veterans bring a wealth of skills, leadership ability and loyalty to the workplace. Many companies have expressed the desire to hire veterans but don’t know where to start, and many have implemented hiring programs but need guidance on how to support veterans in the workplace,” said Amy Fairweather, Swords to Plowshares’ Director of Policy.

The Veteran Employment Strategy Summit is intended to encourage partnerships between employers and the veteran community. Summit participants will discuss obstacles and solutions for veteran recruitment, training, placement and supporting veterans in the workplace.

“This is great opportunity for Bay Area employers to deepen their understanding about veteran culture and the value of hiring a veteran,” said Fairweather. “Unlike a job fair, the summit is not meant to be a hiring event, but a tool and resource for hiring managers.”
