Veterans’ Challenges in the Transition to Civilian Life. One Mind's Peter W. Chiarelli, Veterans Benefit Administration's Allison A. Hickey, and Goldman Sachs' Owen O'Driscoll West join Matthew Pottinger of Davidson Kempner Capital Management to discuss the transition of military veterans from the battlefield into civilian life. The panel addresses public and private employment opportunities for veterans, streamlining veterans' services, how the Veterans Administration is handling claims, and the challenges of educating hiring managers about the skills and leadership veterans possess.
