TEMPO Milwaukee has carved a unique space in the Milwaukee business community by differentiating itself as a premier organization among women's associations. TEMPO Milwaukee targets and attracts successful professional women who are at the top of their respective organizations. TEMPO Milwaukee’s membership is composed of approximately 340 women who hold executive and leadership positions throughout the Milwaukee area. The women of TEMPO Milwaukee influence millions of dollars, manage thousands of people, mentor hundreds of individuals and serve on dozens of boards of directors.

In December 2015, TEMPO Milwaukee launched the Emerging Women Leaders initiative to support the growing pool of professional women and potential TEMPO Milwaukee members who are in mid-career and heading for the executive ranks. Now in its third year, 100 women representing 70+ companies have joined TEMPO Milwaukee's Emerging Women Leaders program to make it what it is today. There is no term limit for Emerging Women Leaders participation, and nominations are processed annually. Candidates are nominated by a current TEMPO Milwaukee member or Emerging Women Leaders participant. Learn more here.
