Hiring Our Heroes, a program of the US Chamber of Commerce Foundation in collaboration with USAA, launched Military Spouse Economic Empowerment Zones (MSEEZ), an effort to address the widespread challenges faced by military spouses as they search for meaningful career opportunities.
San Antonio is the first city privileged to be chosen to spearhead the initiative and Second Lady Karen Pence attended the one-year anniversary event.
“I am so inspired by San Antonio’s efforts. I really, really am. You have the city’s partnership with Hiring our Heroes, USAA, and public and private and nonprofit sectors all together, trying to come up with workforce solutions for our military spouses. I hope other cities follow your lead,” Pence said.
GoldenWolf’s Kirsten Spevak, (Manager, Organizational Strategy and Change Management) attended the event, representing both military spouses and GoldenWolf as a proud employer of military spouses worldwide.
