Helping Veterans in Business and in Our Communities

The VOWS Symposium in New York City was impactful for veterans in all stages of service. 

“[The VOWS Symposium] was an excellent opportunity to hear inspiring speakers and rapidly expand a professional network.”  — One of our first time attendees and newly retired Navy Veteran.

Our VOWS program facilitates career and business opportunities for veterans and service members returning to civilian life. Ralph Andretta, CEO of Bread Financial—a Symposium panelist—highlighted VOWS commitment to veterans powerfully: “Thank you for your service is a terrific slogan but it is not enough. So how do we really help veterans? We do that three ways: in our business, in our community, and in our influence.”

The event was hosted in collaboration with our very generous partner, BlackRock.
