Supporting Military Spouses in Licensed Occupations
3:00 PM ~ 4:00 PM ET
Learn about the work being done to address challenges in military spouse occupational license recognition. Participants in the webinar will hear from licensing peers and military spouses and learn how to implement promising practices in their own states.
Across the country, states, licensing bodies, and businesses are making it easier for military spouses to work. Most states have passed laws creating license recognition options for military spouses looking to practice their occupation in another state. However, the impact of these laws on spouses depends on the extent to which the laws are implemented and operationalized by state agencies and licensing bodies. Learn about the states that are working to make the occupational license recognition process easy to navigate for military spouses during a live U.S. Department of Labor webinar.
This webinar will:
- Highlight the benefits of improving military spouse license recognition practices;
- Showcase real-world examples from states across the country; and
- Provide participants an opportunity to share their own experiences and ask questions.
