On February 6, 1975, four female leaders set out to change the landscape for themselves and other executive, management and professional women. They gathered to participate in the first TEMPO Business and Professional Women’s Club of Milwaukee, Wisconsin which has grown and evolved into what is known today as TEMPO. TEMPO is the largest professional women's group in Wisconsin, composed of nearly 800 members representing diverse industries, functions and companies from throughout the Milwaukee area and Southeastern Wisconsin.

We currently offer two membership levels:

  • TEMPO members are women leaders at the pinnacle of their careers with 10+ years of experience in the workforce and at least five years in a C-level, executive and/or senior leadership position. TEMPO members give back to the community through non-profit and for-profit board service, committees, volunteerism, etc. Learn more here.
  • Emerging Women Leaders are mid-career professionals (not entry-level) with at least six years of professional experience who have demonstrated leadership and been identified as rising stars, on the partner track, etc. within their organizations. EWL members also give back to the community through non-profit board and committee service, volunteerism, etc. Learn more here.
