In celebration of Military Spouse Appreciation Month in May, the Defense Department Spouse Education and Career Opportunities program will host its sixth annual Virtual Military Spouse Symposium on May 10-12.
This year’s theme is “2022 for YOU — More for Your MilLife.” The free event will introduce military spouses to proven tools and techniques for powering their approach to achieving career, personal and family goals. The event will close with an interactive networking opportunity with other military spouses from around the world, DOD leadership and SECO program team members.
During the symposium, military spouses can explore real world examples to develop their unique brand, setting goals and gaining work experience, understanding and tailoring the job search, mastering finances and improving relationships.
“The Virtual Military Spouse Symposium is the premier Defense Department event for military spouse empowerment and goal setting,” said Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Military Community and Family Policy Patricia Montes Barron. “We know investing in yourself translates into good outcomes for your family.”
DOD will host the Virtual Military Spouse Symposium via the Zoom platform, making it accessible to military spouses around the globe. All are welcome to attend no matter what phase of their military life and career they are in.
Registration is now open.
