LVC, national Women Veterans Alliance to convene Sept. 9-10 in Lexington

Lady Veterans Connect will partner with the national Women Veterans Alliance (WVA) for a two day conference scheduled for Sept. 9-10 at the Marriott Griffin Gate in Lexington. WVA is the premier national network focused on directly impacting the quality of life of women veterans. They do this successfully through transforming the way the community networks such as LVC bring people and programs directly together through a reliable and resourceful platform. WVA envisions connecting more than two million women veterans (and their supporters) globally for the purpose of sharing gifts, talents, resources and experience. The alliance is committed to creating a community that equips, empowers and encourages women who have served our country with knowledge, resources, tools, mentorship, key insights, and career opportunities to discover & fulfill their greatest potential.

Melissa Washington, a Navy veteran, founded Women Veterans Alliance in 2015 as a woman disabled veteran small business.
