As reported on The Department of Labor’s blog (Work in Progress), Deputy Assistant Secretary for Policy for DOL’s Veterans’ Employment and Training Service Teresa W. Gerton attended the first VetsInTech Women Veterans Hackathon at Facebook headquarters in Menlo Park, California.
Terry Gerton reports:
“The event brought together women veterans of all eras of service who were interested in starting a business to pitch their ideas, get technical advice and compete for seed funding. Fifty dynamic women participated in the hackathon, and it was incredible to watch them interact, learn from each other and see their ideas mature throughout the day.
Attending the event reminded me once again about the exceptional talent and energy that our women veterans bring to the workplace, and I had such a great time talking to each one of them about their military service, their families and their ideas for their businesses. I know that they will all be very successful in their careers and that this event was just the start of an incredible journey in their entrepreneurship.”
