Women Veteran Round Tables
Women are one of the fastest growing subgroup of Veterans, and they are signing up for VA health care and benefits at higher rates than ever before. Washington, DC is the proud home to one of the highest concentrations of women veterans per capita in the country! All too often, women veterans report that they feel invisible as veterans. The Mayor’s Office of Veterans Affairs is dedicated to ensuring that all veteran residents of the District are able to participate in our programs and initiatives. To better serve you, MOVA's new women veteran outreach initiative was created to help women veterans and their families learn about and gain access to the full range of their earned benefits.
The Mayor’s Office of Veterans Affairs recognizes that women veterans can face unique barriers to accessing the services and benefits they have earned as a result of their service. Our Women Veteran Round Table series is designed to ensure that we create a safe place for women veterans to come and discuss unique challenges related to being a women veteran covering topics like reintegration, VA benefits, military experiences, mindfulness, and daily struggles.
Like our other veteran round table events, we want to ensure that we are empowering our women veterans and provide them with a platform to take ownership of their Office of Veteran Affairs.
Our Women Veteran Round Tables are open to all women veteran residents of Washington, DC, families, caregivers, survivors, and veteran service organizations. If you care about women veterans – you are welcome at the table!
Space is limited, and demand to attend is always high! Please call our office at (202) 724-5454 to reserve your spot at the next round table.
