Hiring Our Heroes is pleased to present the fifth annual Military Spouse Employment Summit. During this virtual event, we will celebrate the progress that community and corporate leaders have made in elevating the conversation around military spouse employment and keeping it in the forefront. Recognizing a decade of work through Hiring Our Heroes’ collaborative efforts, we will take a look back and a look forward, highlighting the strides that have been made and calling for continued partnership as we shape the future. Standing at the starting line of a new age in military spouse economic opportunity, we will encourage long-term implementation of the innovative employment solutions adopted during COVID-19 and explore how they impacted military spouses. Further, we will introduce new, national and local collaborations that will create breakthroughs for military spouse economic opportunity all while inspiring and informing community, government and corporate leaders to move their programming and initiatives to the next iteration. Together, we will celebrate progress and shape the future.  See the webpage and register at:         https://events.hiringourheroes.org/event/a1d67559-3c14-4081-8d2c-ec58eaddec60/regProcessStep1 Agenda:
