HELPING OUR NATION’S VETERANS FIND JOBS IN TECH INDUSTRY
Over the next five years, more than one million highly skilled U.S. military veterans will enter the civilian workforce. The Bay Area Council and member Hanson Bridgett are pleased to support VetsInTech, a Bay Area-based non-profit organization that supports these returning veterans with re-integration services by connecting them to the national technology ecosystem. “The VetsInTech organization and mission closely align with our Workforce Development policy work. We are focused on strengthening the economy, job creation and employment growth and it’s a privilege to provide guidance in establishing this nonprofit foundation,” said Bay Area Council Chief Financial Officer Ken Regalia.
Led by ViT Founder Katherine Webster, VetsInTech is already making headway in the veteran space with widely attended hackathons, resource workshops and employer networking events. Drawing from a pool of talented individuals who have demonstrated the clear connection between military service and excellence in tech careers, VetsInTech is arming local companies with a capable, dedicated workforce. “The VetsInTech team is so pleased to be working with the Bay Area Council and Hanson Bridgett as we continue to explore forward thinking ways to engage with our military population with the tech industry,” said Webster.
