OVERVIEW: In 2015, TEMPO Milwaukee launched the Emerging Women Leaders initiative to support the growing pool of professional women and potential TEMPO Milwaukee members who are mid-career and heading for the executive ranks. This group of rising stars and next-generation leaders is focused on relevant programming and professional development opportunities, social events and networking, peer-to-peer and one-to-one mentoring, and volunteering for community organizations whose missions support women and girls.

MISSION: TEMPO Milwaukee's Emerging Women Leaders initiative connects and fosters emerging women leaders through our enterprise of relevant programming, events, mentoring and community involvement.
