MOAA participated in the inaugural Department of Defense (DoD) Spouse Ambassador Network roundtable at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in Washington, D.C. on July 16th. A select group of Military Spouse Employment Partnership (MSEP) non-profit organizations gathered at the roundtable to work collaboratively in order to support military spouse career opportunities.
The Spouse Ambassador Network’s mission is: to educate, empower, and mentor military spouses to encourage career fulfillment by promoting and sharing resources while facilitating effective relationships with local and national stakeholders. As a Military Spouse Employment Partner, by joining the Spouse Ambassador Network, MOAA is part of an even larger collective effort to support military spouse employment.
The MSEP is a career partnership connecting military spouses with more than 180 partner employers who have pledged to recruit, hire, promote and retain military spouses in portable careers. This partnership helps military spouses find employment, build on their education and experience and achieve their career and personal goals.
