Female Veteran Mentoring Workshop in Palo Alto
November 8 & 9, 2012
Dear Friend,

I hope this finds you well and sincerely appreciate your taking the time to read this as we need your help in getting the word out.  We are looking for female veterans who have recently made the move from the military to the private sector.  We are looking for talented females who have served our country that would benefit from spending two days in Palo Alto as part of a special, intimate mentorship session with a phenomenal group of business executives.  
The COMMIT Foundation is excited to announce that the application process for the Female Veteran Mentoring Workshop is now open. Twelve talented female veterans will participate in a meaningful day of mentorship and relationship building as they spend time with twelve female leaders from the private sector. 

The workshop will take place in Palo Alto, CA on November 8 and 9, 2012.  All expenses for the veterans will be paid.  Events are centered around the idea of inspiring and assisting transitioning veterans from the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts to transition to the civilian workforce.  

The event will be comprised of a dinner on day one, and then two sessions on day two, morning and afternoon, featuring distinguished keynotes speakers including business executives.  Session topics may include leadership training, goal driven initiatives, and how to apply the lessons learned in the military order to the corporate, business, and entrepreneurial worlds.  The seminar will double as a networking forum among participants providing the base of a professional support group among the veterans.

 

I ask that you please send this application link to three female veterans that you think might be interested in applying. (http://commitfoundation.org/application) The application process closes on August 31, 2012.
