The Big Culture Shift: Supporting Veterans as They Transition to the Corporate Environment Through a Blended Learning Experience

Thursday, June 22th at 11 AM ET

With a growing network of more than 10,000 veterans, GE were aware that a target program that would include mentors and sponsors from this community was needed. Partnering with Skillsoft, we designed a Veterans Leadership Journey (VLJ) that includes topics in three key areas: career progression, leadership style, and working environment. After the success of a pilot run, we expanded the program to add additional topics. The feedback is overwhelmingly positive and provides veterans with an opportunity to broaden their network, connect to GE leaders and grow as an individual. Register here.

During this session attendees will:

  • Learn effective techniques to support affinity groups within your organization
  • Hear about best practices for leveraging the Continuous Leadership Journey to build a relevant, engaging, and effective program
  • Discover how to build community through learning
