The Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs (WDVA) webpage recognizes the importance of addressing the unique needs of women veterans in the state of Wisconsin. In order to provide support and resources to women who have served in the military, WDVA has developed several programs and initiatives that are specifically tailored to address the needs of women veterans.
Honoring our Woman Veterans
One such program is the Woman Veteran of the Year award, which recognizes a female veteran who has made significant contributions to her community through her leadership, volunteerism, and advocacy efforts. Additionally, WDVA celebrates Women Veterans Day on June 12th every year, in honor of the contributions and sacrifices that women veterans have made for their country.
Telling the Stories
Another important initiative is the I Am Not Invisible campaign, which seeks to raise awareness about the unique challenges faced by women veterans and to promote greater visibility and recognition for their service. This campaign includes a series of photo exhibitions featuring portraits and personal stories of women veterans, as well as a documentary film and a series of public events and presentations.
The Wisconsin Trailblazers program is another valuable resource for women veterans, providing mentoring and networking opportunities for female veterans who are interested in pursuing leadership roles in their communities or careers.
In addition to these programs, WDVA provides a wide range of resources and support services for women veterans in areas such as education, employment, healthcare, housing, legal
concerns, and more. The department’s website includes links to a variety of organizations and resources specifically geared towards women veterans, as well as a Women Veterans Program brochure and a Programa Para Mujeres Veteranas for Spanish-speaking veterans.
