The ACP Women’s Veteran Mentoring Program, launched this Spring, is a new initiative focused on connecting female veterans with entrepreneurs and female business leaders for one-on-one yearlong mentorships.
ACP hand selects a Mentor for each veteran based on her career goals and preferences. Veterans are mentored on topics ranging from building a civilian-friendly résumé to managing work-life balance and refining leadership and networking skills.
As part of the Women’s Veteran Mentoring Program, veterans will have access to exclusive networking events and career development workshops. The ACP team supports each mentorship throughout the year and provides customized resources tailored to each individual pair.
ACP is working with the U.S. Army Reserve, the U.S. Army’s Soldier for Life program, as well as national nonprofits Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA) and The Mission Continues. ACP is being supported by a number of its corporate partners in this initiative, and is pleased to be working with additional groups including 100 Women in Hedge Funds, Ellevate Network, GLG, and LeanIn.org.
