JPMorgan Chase, founding partner of the Institute for Veterans and Military Families at Syracuse University (IVMF), will hold its 100,00 Jobs Mission coalition meeting later this week in Dallas, Texas. In addition to building understanding of the military landscape, the April 10 convening will foster strengthening relationships among the coalition members.
IVMF co-founder and managing director James Schmeling will present on the institute’s National Veterans Strategy during the morning session and lead an afternoon working group on fundamentals in the early start up and intermediate growth of member programs focused on veteran employment, including a composite of leading practices and knowledge transfer.
The morning session includes additional remarks from leaders in the veterans employment space, including Joe DePinto, CEO of 7-Eleven; Mel Parker, president of Brinks; Patty Watson, CIO of Brinks; Brian Ketz, acting chief of staff at the U.S. Department of Labor; and Eddie Dunn, senior vice president of military and veterans affairs at JPMC.
In addition, representatives from the IVMF will host an information table during the meeting’s hiring event, which is currently tracking registrations for more than 100 employers and upwards of 1,500 military applicants who will take part. The information table will focus on IVMF programs for veterans and employers, including Veteran Employment Leading Practices: Tools for Engaging Talent and the Veterans Career Transition Program, as well as the IVMF’s entire portfolio of self-employment training programs.
