What is the Veterans and Diversity Hiring Expo?

Hartford Athletic is not only committed to world-class soccer entertainment; we are committed to providing pathways for everyone in our community through our year-round community pillars of support.

On September 7, 2021, in partnership with the Connecticut Department of Labor, Hartford Athletic will be hosting the 2021 Veterans and Diversity Hiring Expo at Dillon Stadium in Hartford. The Expo is free to those who are underemployed, seeking new career opportunities, or most importantly, directly impacted in their careers by COVID-19. Each registrant will also receive a free ticket to the Hartford Athletic Veterans and Military Appreciation Night match vs. Louisville City FC following the Expo at 7pm.

Hartford Athletic will host up to 60 organizations who support a diverse workforce providing opportunities for veterans, people of color, women, and those with disabilities. In conjunction with our partners, we will also provide educational opportunities for those looking for résumé assistance, interview strategies, and dress for success advice to assist in the process.

Case studies in other markets have shown this format to create over 260 new career paths. We expect even more in this great, diverse city and state.

Supporting partners of the event include the Connecticut Department of Transportation, Stop & Shop, and the U.S. Army National Guard.
