WOMEN IN THE PUBLIC SECTOR
AWI is committed to partnering with military transition programs to provide their separating females with a comprehensive learning and development track that addresses the needs most reported by military females entering civilian life. The Separating Military Female E3 Learning Track focuses learning in three key areas that empower transitioning military women: Emotionally, Educationally, and Economically.
According to an 2019 article in the Military Times, 67 percent of women veterans find their financial transition from the military difficult as they often experience a loss of income compared to 47 percent of male veterans. In addition, women veterans also have different social and psychological experiences than women who are private citizens. AWI's curriculum targets these social and psychological concerns.
AWI is not only proud of the 200,000 plus active-duty women serving in our military, but are equally proud of the more than 30,000 women transitioning to civilian life every year, which according to data from the Department of Veterans Affairs, will increase to 18 percent of the veteran population by 2040.
