Women Veterans

Veterans' Employment and Training Service (VETS) Women Veteran Program


The Women Veteran Program monitors the employment situation of women veterans to ensure DOL VETS programs serve women veterans and male veterans equitably. When new or updated information about women veterans in the workforce becomes available, it is made public on this webpage, either as a fact sheet or as a webinar.

Free employment services are available at American Job Centers nationwide, and they are effective for women veterans. In fact, one study showed that women veterans who used them experienced less of a wage gap than women nonveterans using comparable services. Veterans receive priority of service, and veterans with significant barriers to employment may receive more intensive case management, so be sure to tell them you are a veteran!
