Empowering Women Veterans
The Windy City shined a national spotlight on women in the armed forces when Syracuse University’s Institute for Veterans and Military Families (IVMF) hosted Women Veterans Week Chicago. Held in May, the 5-day series of events was anchored around the Veteran Women Igniting the Spirit of Entrepreneurship (V-WISE) conference. Created as a partnership between the IVMF and the U.S. Small Business Administration, V-WISE is the nation’s leading entrepreneurship training program for women veterans, active duty women service members and female military family members, positioned to empower participants to launch and/or grow sustainable business ventures.
