Join this webinar on Zoom on September 30, 9:30-11am, for an interactive session designed to assist you to better serve women who have served, and continue to serve, in the U.S. Armed Forces. This event combines brief presentations from subject matter experts from the New York Legal Assistance Group and the VA New York Harbor Women Veterans Program and four women veterans who will share their experiences and suggestions to better serve their community.
- The unique challenges of military women in a male-dominated culture,
- How misconceptions and gender bias inhibit women's transition to civilian life,
- How you might recognize their service and begin developing a trusting relationship,
- What you might do to better deliver the services they need and deserve.
