Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse hosted military veterans and guests for the Welcome Reception for the 2019 Leadership Pasadena’s (LP) Community Leadership Course for Veterans treating all to delicious foods and beverages.

“Thanks to Ruth’s Chris Pasadena, we can honor our veterans with a very special welcome to show them how honored we are they are joining our leadership cohort. Ruth’s Chris generosity is exceptional and so appreciated. This is an exceptional generous restaurant,” explained Leadership Pasadena Board Member Phyllis Lynes.

“Veterans have tremendous skills in leadership, technology, operations, crisis management plus an inspirational service-driven work ethic all of which is lost when veterans do not engage in their new civilian community, school or job,” according to LP Veterans Services Coordinator Lisa Raggio. “This course re-missions our veterans as community service leaders in our community, benefiting the veteran and the community.”

“The course openly and honestly builds civilian cultural competency in our veterans so they understand their new civilian world and how to find a mission-driven leadership role in our charities, civic organizations and our businesses,” LP Board member and U.S. Army veteran Phyllis Lynes explained.

The LP course addresses leadership in the civilian world, civilian business culture and organization savvy, multi-generational leadership, non-profit Board training, the corporate landscape and the history, culture, arts and sciences of Pasadena and more. In 2019, participants will also be offered free, personalized job placement, training and enhancement services through the Verdugo Workforce Development Board that serves veterans throughout LA County.
