  • Description

In 2013, the Civic Committee of the Commercial Club of Chicago and the Robert R. McCormick Foundation joined forces to form the Veterans Working Group (VWG) as a community of knowledge dedicated to veteran employment efforts. Since its inception, the group has progressed into an effective model of collaboration among employers and community partners, all seeking to make Chicagoland a better place for military veterans and servicemembers to live and work. With representatives from more than 40 Commercial Club employers and related community organizations, the VWG is unique in its approach. 

This case study outlines the important work that the VWG has done to promote veteran career success.
