PROFESSIONAL PROFILE DIRECTORY
As part of the Career Workshop and OWLS, AcademyWomen is providing the opportunity for event participants to include their profiles in the 2024 Professional Profile Directory (PPD). The Professional Profile Directory features the highly sought-after skills, talents and leadership competencies of military women in career transition. This directory will be shared with AcademyWomen partners who may be able to facilitate hiring, a group that includes a wide array of top-caliber corporate, nonprofit and government entities. Not able to attend the events? If you are a military officer woman, senior enlisted woman or a degreed military spouse in career transition, you can still include your information in the Professional Profile Directory. For more information, visit the PPD here.
AcademyWomen is working to reserve a block of rooms for the event.
