The Department of Veterans Affairs’ Center for Women Veterans and nonprofit organization LeanIn.Org have formed a partnership in an effort to provide support to women veterans.
The LeanIn.Org Women Veterans’ chapter initiative consists of pilot programs, where women veterans will participate in peer-to-peer meetings and share leadership skills with fellow women veterans and non-military members, VA said Thursday.
“Women are the fastest growing population of our nation’s veterans and through this circles program, these women will have the peer support and community they need to reach their goals,” said Ashley Finch, LeanIn.Org head of partnerships.
The VA and LeanIn.Org partnership builds on the previous introduction of LeanIn.Org circles within the Defense Department.
Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg founded LeanIn.Org to help empower women to achieve their goals.
