Building a better future for Milwaukee
Milwaukee is a vibrant city with much to offer. However, poverty, lack of access
to good jobs and education and racial tension have created a deep divide – one
that must be bridged for the entire community to realize its potential.
Many people, companies and nonprofit organizations give tirelessly of their
time and energy to provide better access to jobs, education, food and adequate
healthcare. But how does it all work together, and what could we be
Join BizTimes Media and a panel of business and community leaders to discuss
current efforts and future opportunities as we work together to solve these
complex and deeply-rooted challenges.
Each year, we honor reader-nominated corporate citizens and nonprofits for their ongoing commitment to making Milwaukee a better place to live, work and play. Following the panel discussion the finalists will be celebrated and the winners will be announced.
BizTimes is pleased to announce the following:
