2rbConsulting, N-Side Out Housing & Supportive Services, Reach House Association, and Veterans Independent Enterprises of Washington (V.I.E.W) came together to provide lunch for 150 amazing kids from JBLM at the 15 to 1: Jermaine Kearse Foundation.
It was an honor for 2rbConsulting to be a sponsor and support such a great foundation that supports kids from the military community. Kearse's foundation brought these kids out to the Junior Achievement Center in Auburn, Washington for a week-long business and finance camp!
2rbConsulting, Inc. was honored for our Veteran Hiring practices by the Director of Washington Department of Veterans Affairs, Alfie Alvarado-Ramos, and Congresswoman Gina McCabe at the YesVets Recognition Ceremony at the Capitol on Flag Day, June 14th, 2016.
Rep. McCabe sponsored House Bill 2040 to encourage businesses to hire Veterans and to improve the overall Veteran employment rate. The bill passed both legislative chambers and was signed into law by Governor Jay Inslee in late April. Businesses, Agencies and Organizations who have hired Veterans were recognized during the ceremony. Hiring a Veteran is good for our state's businesses and great for our country!
A FORCE FOR WOMEN-OWNED AND VETERAN EMPLOYMENT: BETTA BEASLEY
Day in and day out, our leader Betta Beasley strives to make a difference in this world. She will never forget the people who helped her transition out of the U.S. Army, and she is determined to make that same impact on the lives of others.
"When Betta Beasley transitioned out of the U.S. Army, she had gained valuable knowledge in multiple languages and extensive IT experience, yet she struggled to find a job. She eventually overcame stereotypes she faced as a gay woman veteran, but that foundational experience searching for employment continues to drive her passion for her business today."
A diverse mix of professional women business owners from the Seattle area were brought together for an evening of inspiration, networking, and education. The idea behind this event was to give these women an opportunity to share experiences and best practices, as well as build new relationships and long-term alliances. It was an honor for 2rbConsulting to be a sponsor and support the benefits of being WBENC certified through ASTRA.
