Innovation and educational success are crucial for a region's social and economic future. Using both proven and groundbreaking newer techniques and strategies, GMC members and partners work to reinvent how today's high school and collegiate students explore and prepare for career paths in Milwaukee to help fill the demand for top talent with regional companies and to grow entrepreneurial activity in southeastern Wisconsin.
Our valued partners include public school systems, universities and colleges, companies ranging from international corporations to small businesses and start-ups, along with other non-profit organizations and civic leaders.
Initiatives within our Innovation and Talent Focus Area include Key to the City, The Commons, and these great partnership and legacy projects. They results in high school and college students who are better prepared to enter the workforce, and employers who are able to increase their growth opportunities with higher levels of talent.
