 June 21, 2012 Veterans On Wall Street (VOWS)

VOWS seeks to raise the profile of veterans on Wall Street and highlight the financial services industry as a veteran-friendly employer.  The conference is sponsored entirely by the participating banks; attendance is free of charge, and contributions above conference cost will be allocated across a handful of established, national veterans-focused charitable organizations. Seating is limited.

The one-day conference will be held at the 60 Wall Street Atrium and Cipriani’s in New York City, convening Wall Street firms, industry participants, transitioning service members, recent veterans and their families. Also in attendance will be military and government leaders, military support organizations and others who have a shared interest in veterans employment opportunities. 

The conference agenda will include breakout sessions for industry-wide sharing of best practices, information sessions for recent military veterans and employment workshops. For this year’s conference agenda click here

SIFMA is proud to support Veterans on Wall Street (VOWS), an initiative dedicated to honoring former military personnel and employees currently in the National Guard and Reserve by facilitating career and business opportunities in the financial services industry.  In 2011, we were honored to have General Stanley McChrystal offer the Securities Industry Institute, the industry’s leading executive education program, opening address, facilitated through our ongoing partnership with VOWS. In his presentation, General McChrystal focused on identifying the key components of successful leadership, drawing upon his own varied experiences in crafting a model for modern leadership and how it can be applied across diverse disciplines and professions.
