2017 Community Conversations
Last year, United Way conducted a series of conversations with community members in order to understand what kind of community they want, the issues important to them, their ideas for moving foward, and who they trust to take action. Common themes emerged, and United Way shared how Community Conversations have already impacted the community.
Check out the 2017 Community Conversations report.
Partnership MKE is a new initiative that aims to break down barriers and destroy bias by pairing individual community leaders across lines of difference. Through a focus on cohesion, inclusion, and overcoming divisions, Partnership MKE aims to build social capital and spur critical conversations about bias among our community’s leadership.
United Way awarded three outstanding individuals for their committment to making our community a better place for all.
Congratulations to Barbara Smith, Gwen T. Jackson Community Service Award; Barbara Edwards, John A. Puelicher Award for Loaned Executive Excellence; and Greg Marcus, Billy & Ethel Heller Award.
