HISTORY
The Women’s Affinity Alliance (WAA) was founded in 2011 by TEMPO members from Deloitte and MillerCoors who were leading their company’s employee resource groups (ERG). Krista Brookman and Tami Garrison saw the opportunity to create an initiative that brings women’s ERG leaders and stakeholders together to network, share best practices, and keep up-to-date on trends in women’s affinity programs. With support and input from a focus group of TEMPO members, the Women’s Affinity Alliance was born!


A SIGNATURE TEMPO INITIATIVE
WAA is supported by TEMPO and its strong legacy of advancing executive and emerging professional women in Milwaukee. Over the last 46 years, much has changed in our world and for women in the workplace. As the landscape for women has evolved, so has our organization and we know this to be true: TEMPO’s work and our collective power has never been more important.


MISSION
To connect ERG leaders and stakeholders and provide them with networking and access to best practices to bring back to their organizations and grow their female talent.


VISION
The go-to resource for individuals and organizations looking for information and connections to advance their women-focused employee resource groups and female talent.
