Humana Supports Veterans And Their Families Through Innovative Symposium In San Diego

Veterans and military families can learn more about entrepreneurship and small business management at a symposium hosted by Humana Inc. in partnership with the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities on Thursday, Oct. 11 at The Lodge at Torrey Pines in San Diego.

The one-day symposium will build awareness of the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities (EBV) program in the San Diego area. The EBV offers cutting edge, experiential training in entrepreneurship and small business management at no cost to post-9/11 veterans with service-connected disabilities. The symposium is open to veterans, military family members, veteran advisors and representatives of veterans’ organizations and programs that assist veterans in returning to civilian life.

Last year, through its national Veterans Initiative, Humana committed to hire 1,000 veterans and/or their spouses over three years. To date, Humana has hired more than 800-plus veterans and/or their spouses in a variety of roles across the company. Humana is also contributing $1 million to the EBV as part of its national Veterans Initiative.

“Humana is committed to providing resources, support and benefits to our veterans and their families,” said Ed Sandrick, National Business Executive, Humana Veterans Initiative. “We are honored to partner with the EBV in this symposium and look forward to introducing our veterans in Southern California to information and opportunities that can benefit them and their families.”

The EBV was established at Syracuse University’s Martin J. Whitman School of Management and is operated by the university’s Institute for Veterans and Military Families (IVMF). The EBV is offered through a network of leading business and hospitality schools that includes Syracuse, the University of Connecticut, Florida State University, Louisiana State University, Purdue University, Texas A&M University, Cornell University and the University of California – Los Angeles (UCLA).

“We are grateful for Humana’s current and continued support of the EBV program as part of its new Veterans Initiative,” said Mike Haynie, Ph.D., Founder and Executive Director of the Institute for Veterans and Military Families. “Many veterans and their families will be in town for the Miramar Airshow. We hope that they will take advantage of this free symposium to learn more about pursuing entrepreneurship as a post-service life course and vocational path forward for military family members.”
