Press Release (ePRNews.com) - NEW YORK - Jun 05, 2017 - Pathfinder Labs (www.pathfinder.vet) — a crowdsourced reviews publisher for the military and veteran communities — will host the first in a quarterly panel series discussing issues in military family reintegration on 13 June 2017 from 5-7pm at Civic Hall, 118 W 22nd Street, 12th Floor, New York, New York. This series launch event will address personal veteran and family experiences using community services to build networks, and how they believe local communities can better meet the immediate needs of underserved populations. This event is launched through partners Civic Hall, KCBC, and NYU Future Labs and is geared towards the greater community including veterans, families, service providers, and general members of the public.
The panel moderator will be Elana Duffy, Founder and CEO of Pathfinder and US Army Veteran. Panel participants will include, in part (subject to change):
• Brett Morash, US Navy Veteran and COO of Bob Woodruff Foundation
• Marie Roker-Jones, US Army Spouse and Co-Founder of OweYah
• Kristen Rouse, US Army Reservist and Founding Director of NYC Veterans Alliance
• Pamela Campos-Palma, US Air Force Veteran and Political and Strategy Consultant
• Benari Poulten, US Army Veteran and ESPN Writer
The panelists have over 80 years combined of service between them, and each has succeeded in his/her post-service life and career. Audience members available for networking before and after the panel include NYC government employees, service providers representing national organizations and NYC support resources, and technology start-ups working in social enterprise development.
Elana Duffy is confident that these panels will highlight the value of Pathfinder’s services and encourage change in the national support network. She adds, “I transitioned in 2013 and I relied heavily on my personal veteran network for recommendations and advice, there was nowhere else to turn. The more help I got from my network, the better experience I had and the easier things became for me. I founded Pathfinder in 2015 to provide that same type network on a greater scale to every veteran, especially those in need. With continuing panels like this one, we will be able to reach and help even more members and create real change in the support service community.”
Panel series sponsors include NYU Future Labs, Kings County Brewers Collective, and Civic Hall. Raffle prizes and other event features such as live-stream are available for the first year of the series thanks to the recent Pathfinder Labs’ semi-final victory in the Sam’s Club and SCORE Small Business Championship.
Any views expressed by panelists are their own and not representative of their respective businesses or organizations.
