Honoring Veterans at RTI

Veterans Are Welcome Here

Veterans make up a significant percentage of our population both nationally and in North Carolina. Our military veterans enhance our organization and bring valuable leadership and technical skills to the workforce.

RTI has a longstanding commitment to create opportunity for and improve the lives of those who have served in the military and their families, through volunteerism, veteran-focused employee programs, and research on topics that impact active-duty service members and veterans.

RTI’s ERG for Veterans

Our commitment to veterans is organization-wide. Veterans who work at RTI are encouraged to participate in our VALoR, an Employee Resource Group for veterans and allies. VALoR provides a professional network, active community, and development opportunities for its members, while helping to position RTI as an employer of choice.
