Thousands of Greater Milwaukee-area residents pulled up a chair at gatherings like ours to discuss the future of our communities while sharing a meal together. Demonstrating the power of collaboration, community residents from all ages and backgrounds met together to put real issues and solutions “on the table” and share their commitments to helping shape our collective future. One MKE celebrated with diverse food, conversations, and people from all walks of life and backgrounds.
The Driver Of Diversity Awards reception is an opportunity to highlight those individuals and corporations that embrace and understand the benefit of driving diversity by fostering and retaining a diverse pipeline of talent and improving cultural competence in order to positively impact our city and work towards a ONE MKE.
Newaukee and ONEMKE are partnering to serve as a catalyst for young professionals, engaging a conversation around the desire for a sustainable landscape for the city of Milwaukee, when it comes to having a functional and aesthetically pleasing culture for our diverse city. We will highlight the work and innovation of those who recognize they are working in and on the same landscape as they share with us how they found success in tending to this common plot of land in Milwaukee.
