VetsinTech: The Impact at Pebble Beach


VetsinTech will host THE IMPACT at Pebble Beach (Jun 30 - Jul 3) over the patriotic 4th of July holiday. This event will lead into the historical, U.S. Women's Open at Pebble Beach which has never been held at this iconic location. Spread the word and help VetsinTech make with this special women's and DEI-focused event a success.

Together with our sponsors we will increase awareness and create real impact through VetsinTech's mission to:

  • Drive Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) in the tech sector - 63% of the VIT community identify as minorities and women vets are the fastest growing population of the Military
  • Support the 200K vets transitioning out of the military every year - 80% without a job
  • Assist our vets and military spouses into higher paying jobs and better quality of life
  • Grow our VIT Academy training programs - 90% are upskilled or land new jobs

This event will be an invite-only, sponsored fundraising event to help VetsinTech support critical programs for our veterans and military spouses in Education, Employment, and Entrepreneurship
