In 1975, most women, regardless of talent, competence or position, were kept outside of their city's power structure - outside, looking in. A few enterprising women in Milwaukee decided to do something about it.
- Women who had already "arrived" and who were part of the power structure;
- Women who held positions of influence but who were not necessarily part of the "inner circle," and;
- Women of talent, drive and ambition who had the potential for being giants in the community and who could ensure the ongoing influence of TEMPO Milwaukee.
After its launch, TEMPO Milwaukee immediately began to thrive. Within five years, a second group of women adapted the concept and formed another organization in Madison, Wisconsin, also called TEMPO.
