Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 15 Mag 2019

Biocom Institute, the non-profit workforce development and science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) arm of Biocom, today announced that it has received a $150,000 Workforce Accelerator Fund grant from the California Workforce Development Board to help introduce veterans to careers in the life sciences.The grant will help to support Biocom Institute’s “Gateway to Life Science Careers for Veterans” project, a mission that will accelerate the recognition of veterans’ existing skills and provide educational opportunities and networking with leaders from the life science industry. This includes creating the Veterans in Life Science Virtual Network (VLSVN), a resource aimed at improving job matching and assessment strategies to accelerate employment, as well as hosting a number of career symposiums and fairs, workshops and mentorship programs.“By providing a comprehensive set of resources for veterans looking to enter the industry, this grant will ultimately support the talent crisis our rapidly accelerating life science landscape is currently facing,” said Joe Panetta, CEO of Biocom. “Given the crossover of skillsets between veterans and the life science workforce, such as communication, leadership and mission-driven values, this group of individuals will synergistically support our industry in a broad range of ways.”
