BPW Foundation and its Advisory Council and employer partners will provide oversight, mentor training, research and analysis of Joining Forces for Women Veterans and Military Spouses Mentoring Plus. 

Why BPW Foundation?  BPW has always focused on working women – more specifically, women working in non-traditional occupations.  In 2005 BPW Foundation recognized the surge of women veterans returning home from two wars.  Being the first foundation to focus research exclusively on working women, we wanted to know how workplaces were receiving these new and uniquely skilled workers and what resources were available to help them move from the military to the civilian workforce.  The Women Joining Forces (WJF) Advisory Council and Mentoring Advisory Council were created to provide the expertise and experience needed to accomplish our goals to support military women in their efforts to successfully transition to the civilian world.

BPW is open to any and all suggestions to improve the goals of this program and those who use it.  We also welcome company and organizational support of this program.  To learn more about our Leadership Challenge, click here.
