Women Veterans and Clergy Conference,

Richmond, Virginia, United States Richmond, Virginia, United States

  • About the event

    The 2020 Women Veterans and Clergy Conferences bring together women veterans, healthcare providers, military chaplains, civilian clergy, researchers, and mind/body practitioners to discuss moral injury, coping mechanisms, spirituality/religion as it relates to healing and recovery, and innovative approaches to addressing gaps in support for women veterans.

    Besides conducting cutting edge research, Roberts Research and Consulting is hosting a series of conferences that will give veterans a chance to tell their stories so that chaplains and clergy will get a true sense of some of the problems that still exist in support systems. Military chaplains and clergy will talk about ways that they are working to bring healing in their spaces. Researchers will describe the latest findings, and mental health practitioners will expose attendees to a variety of modalities. The conference will also give attendees a chance to build relationships with each other for ongoing help and support.

    The Women Veterans and Clergy Conferences take a diversity approach to spirituality and faith. Clergy and practitioners from a wide variety of faiths, disciplines, and religions are welcome. The conferences will include healing and mind/body events.

    Why should you sponsor?

    Sponsoring the conference will give companies a chance to put their business in front of many veterans, military leaders, chaplains, and support professionals who could become long-term customers. Sponsoring will also help ensure that veterans, who often have a low level of financial resources, will be able to attend the event through travel scholarships.
