CVS Caremark, BPW Foundation partner to help women veterans, military spouses in career development
WASHINGTON — CVS Caremark has partnered with Business and Professional Women’s Foundation’s Joining Forces Mentoring Plus program to support women veterans and military/veteran spouses as they navigate the civilian workplace.
Through the partnership, CVS Caremark will enlist volunteer women employees as mentors and subject matter experts for women veterans and military/veteran spouses within the Joining Forces Mentoring Plus “high tech-high touch” online community.
Joining Forces Mentoring Plus provides free employment tools and connects women veterans of all branches, eras, ranks and military/veteran spouses with volunteer working-women mentors and subject-matter experts. The program, framed around “Working Women Helping Women Work,” meets these women where they are and helps them translate their military skills and build self confidence to find and keep meaningful civilian careers, or start and grow their own businesses.
CVS Caremark will enlist mentors from the company’s population of women employees across the country by tapping into their Colleague Resource Groups.
