    A Fascinating Discussion with Dr. David Shulkin

    Secretary David Shulkin, the ninth Secretary of the US Department of Veterans Affairs, will share insights on January 30, 3:45-5:30pm, about his service to two very different Presidents and the current state of public service as he discusses his best selling book, It Shouldn’t Be This Hard To Serve Your Country.

    American veterans face a number of challenges in the country today - from chronic homelessness to mental health issues and PTSD to a chaotic and understaffed VA. While technology has evolved to keep up with the needs of the United States military, the same change and care for veterans are often regarded as lagging behind.

    Dr. David Shulkin, who served as the United States Secretary for Veteran’s Affairs in the Trump Administration from February 2017 until March 2018, and before that as Under Secretary of Veterans Affairs for Health in the Obama Administration, joins Rutgers for a candid discussion about the policy and politics of veterans’ affairs.

This vast talent pool represents significant opportunities for organizations looking to hire qualified and hard-working employees and has become an integral segment of the Human Capital portion of the Social pillar within Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG). But to take advantage, companies need to know their stuff.

    This one-day, annual event features dynamic speakers and panel discussions with nationally recognized employers distinguished for strong track records in veterans’ employment. Military Times reporters and editors will help lead the discussions. Their experts will explore cutting-edge topics such as:

    • Successful Veteran Hiring
    • New Careers Post-Service
    • Creating a Strong Veteran Culture
    • Retaining Veterans
    • Team-building and Leadership Skills of Veterans
    • Veterans’ Technical Skills
    • Supporting Employees in the National Guard or Reserves
    • Veteran Employee Resource Groups
    • Military Spouse and Family Support
    • How Veterans Fill a Unique Space within Diversity and Inclusion
    • Resolving Barriers to Employment

    The conference is designed to offer attendees actionable tools and information to establish and build upon veteran initiatives. It will also provide a great opportunity to network with peers from leading companies.

    Register here. The event is designed for employers who want to hire veterans, but veterans are welcome to attend.
