Eddy Mentzer of the Spouse Employment and Career Opportunities program of the Department of Defense’s Family Readiness Policy will start this webinar by discussing the resources and tools this program has in place to support military spouses. He will cover the benefits and the pitfalls of working as a freelancer or contractor, and the “gig economy.” He will also discuss new partnerships SECO has developed to further support military spouses.
Ray Milano, Deputy Associate Administrator for the Office of Veterans Business Development of the U.S. Small Business Administration, will then explain the programs the SBA has to support military spouses, as well as instruction on how to navigate those programs.

Both presenters will share success stories of entrepreneurial military spouses. Webinar attendees working with military service members will leave the webinar knowing where to find resources, partnering organizations, and support when working with military spouses seeking educational or career opportunities.
