We recently held a DoDLive Bloggers Roundtable with Robert L. Gordon III, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense (Military Community and Family Policy) on Wednesday June 29.
Mr. Gordon discussed the Military Spouse Employment Partnership (MSEP), an expansion of the current Army Spouse Employment Partnership (ASEP) that is mutually beneficial to the Army and corporate America. The partnership provides Army spouses with opportunities to attain financial security, and achieve employment goals through career mobility and enhanced employment options.
MSEP officially launches on June 29 with the signing of a Memorandum of Agreement and the induction of 15 new corporate members at the Chamber of Commerce in Washington, D.C.
The signing offers the opportunity to raise awareness about the partnership and encourage spouses to visit ourmilitary.mil to find out more information. Joining us on the call were Amy Buschatz, of SpouseBUZZ; Sarah Reinheimer, of Center for a New American Security; Jennifer Polchek, of Militaryoneclick.com; Wendy Poling, of MyMilitaryLife.com; Bailey Bernius, of National Military Family Association; and Karen Francis, of MilSpouseMutterings.com.
