CIR Director, Dr. Anthony Hassan, recently attended the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) meeting focused on creating jobs and fostering economic growth in the United States. CGI was established by President Bill Clinton in 2005 to bring together global leaders in order to create and implement innovative solutions to pressing challenges.
The meeting, called CGI America, was held in Chicago in late June and included participation by more than 700 business, nonprofit, and government leaders. At the start of the meeting, President Clinton hosted a plenary session on job creation and highlighted programs that will help promote domestic economic growth.
Webcasts of all of the CGI America plenary sessions can be viewed here.
Each meeting attendee participated in one of ten working groups focused on a particular topic related to boosting the economy and job growth. Dr. Hassan participated in the Veterans Working Group, which addressed the soaring unemployment rate among veterans and focused on developing strategies to help veterans find employment with civilian employers. During its three meeting sessions, the Veterans Working Group detailed the need to consolidate all of the information and resources necessary for veterans to start a business and also outlined an initiative to elicit commitments from Fortune 500 companies and their sub-contractors to hire veterans.
More broadly, CGI encourages organizations and businesses to implement concrete plans to address challenges in their communities. These Commitments to Action tackle specific problems through explicit and measurable actions. This summer, CIR made a Commitment to Action to help address the shortage of behavioral health professionals currently available to effectively treat servicemembers, veterans, and their families. According to this Commitment to Action, called “Building Capacity in Behavioral Healthcare for Veterans,” CIR will provide free slots to providers in both its on-ground and online military behavioral health continuing education course series during the next year.
The next series of CIR’s continuing education courses will be held this fall, at the CIR facilities in Los Angeles.
