A National Discussion of Issues Facing Millennials in Milwaukee

NEWaukee establishes Milwaukee as the nation’s leader in Millennial engagement with the 3rd annual YPWeek 2014 April 12 to April 19, an eight-day conference taking a hands-on approach to addressing issues facing the younger generation with 30 unique events hosted in 25 exclusive and historic locations around the city.

Each year, NEWaukee partners with over 50 different local organizations to create a springboard for idea and goal sharing among Milwaukee’s millennial workforce. With the platform of YPWeek, NEWaukee and local partners create a national audience for idea sharing, an increased sense of connectivity, and an investment in our local community among Milwaukee’s millennial workforce.

“Milwaukee is home to many organizations and community assets that engage, develop and retain the local young professional community,” explains Angela Damiani president of NEWaukee. “YPWeek allows Milwaukee’s young professionals to discover the city’s incredible assets and engage in meaningful conversations around issues that matter.”

The week features local government, corporate and nonprofit leadership exposing their contributions to the city at large.
