About This Webinar

Military family members are an integral part of a service member’s support system, but the challenges faced by military spouses in maintaining employment are often overlooked. The Department of Defense provides an array of support services, resources, community networks, programs, and initiatives to assist military spouses in pursuing their career goals while ensuring their family’s well-being.

This webinar addresses the ways in which the Department of Defense endeavors to positively influence the career trajectories of military spouses, contributing to their families’ economic stability and overall well-being. Join us as we work towards creating a more supportive and inclusive environment for those who sacrifice alongside our service members!

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the unique challenges military spouses face in balancing employment responsibilities with the demands of military life, including frequent relocations and deployments, and how these challenges affect family well-being.
  • Describe what the Department of Defense has implemented to collectively address the barriers around military spouse employment in support of military readiness and retention.
  • Recognize the correlation between military family systems of support and their economic well-being.
