Nearly 150 people joined us during Milwaukee's Boys & Men of Color Week to discuss how the way we work is changing and how these new paradigms can be used to improve employment outcomes for boys and men of color in Milwaukee. Attendees discussed challenges and suggested new strategies in four areas: Networks, 21st Century Skills, Entrepreneurship and Pipelines & Pathways.
