CAMPBELL, CA – U.S. Senate candidate Carly Fiorina today spoke at Project HIRED’s 25th Annual Recognition Breakfast in Campbell, where she helped celebrate the organization’s accomplishments and discuss the important role the Silicon Valley business community can play in helping wounded veterans transition back into civilian life.
“Project HIRED and the Wounded Warrior Workforce program exemplify the good work that can be achieved when the public, private and nonprofit sectors come together to address mutually relevant issues,” said Fiorina. “The Silicon Valley business community has an important role to play in leveraging this region’s talent, technology and people to help disabled workers and veterans achieve their fullest professional potential, and it’s my pleasure to join the chorus of voices applauding Project HIRED and the Wounded Warrior Workforce program for the good work underway.”
Founded in 1978, the mission of Project HIRED is to help people with disabilities gain and sustain employment. The organization offers an array of job placement, training, and employment services designed to promote self sufficiency and independence, and has helped hundreds of people with disabilities get good jobs at competitive wages. Founded in January 2010, Project HIRED’s Wounded Warrior Workforce program is specifically designed to support veterans with disabilities who are transitioning into a successful civilian career.
