    Thinking Bigger: Veteran’s Day Entrepreneurial Recognition Breakfast

    08:00 AM - 10:00 AM
    This Veteran's Day Entrepreneurial Breakfast is a part of our three days of Thinking Bigger: Women in 2016. Join us for this expanded, sit-down breakfast and hear from two amazing speakers:
    “Journey to Normal: Women Warriors Enter the Workforce”
    Women are leading – in business and on the battlefield. Over 15% of the U.S. Armed Forces are women, and the lift of the Combat Exclusion Policy means they are officially serving on the frontlines of the longest war in our nation’s history. As these women combat veterans return to their families and communities after deployment, what does the transition from the warfront to the workforce look like? How do military skills transfer to a civilian job? Why hire veterans? What do veterans value in a civilian profession? Director/Producer JulieHera DeStefano will share the experiences of Journey to Normal project participants as these remarkable women warriors enter the workforce.
    “What Entrepreneurs Can Learn from Successful Women Veteran Business Owners”
    As a female veteran and as a successful woman entrepreneur, the skills developed during active duty service have directly impacted Dr. Kelly Hunt's career path and entrepreneurial journey. These skills include the dimensions of innovativeness, risk taking, and proactivity, which are as important on the battlefield as they are in the boardroom. According to Michele Markey, vice president of Kauffman FastTrac, “Veterans possess some of the most important skills needed to become successful entrepreneurs. Leadership experience and the ability to calculate risk, manage teams and take initiative are invaluable characteristics of successful business owners.” The good news for those who have never served is that these skills can be learned!
