Today Veterans represent just 1% of the population of the United States, and yet they have an outsized impact on society as a whole as well as the private industry roles they go on to. And so what better topic to discuss on Veterans’ Day 2021, than leadership.
In this special Veteran's Day livestream, produced in partnership with Vets2Industry, Host Scott Luton was joined by three amazing leaders from the Veteran community. Marina Rabinek is a 24-year veteran of the Navy and Founder of the Military Women's Collective (MWC). Rod Lee put in 23 years of active duty in the Air Force, and Jermaine Cohen served 4 years in the Army, which included a tour in Iraq. Today, Rod and Jermaine both work with PRJKT (Project) Vet, a Disabled Veteran, Black-owned product marketing and consulting company.
In this conversation, Marina, Rod, and Jermaine share their unique perspectives on:
• The top Veteran-related topic that they each believe is worthy of more attention and discussion than it currently receives
• Why it is important for specific groups of Veterans, like women or minorities, to connect inside of the larger Veteran community
• The rich array of resources available to Veterans, whether they need casual support, assistance with mental health concerns, or help transitioning into private industry.
