Thank you for your interest in this program.  Registration is closed.   If you remain interested, please visit this website on September 11th – the podcast will be posted (Watch Now) and available for viewing and sharing.


We hope you will join us (online) September 10 for “On the Issues with Mike Gousha: Attracting and Retaining Young Professionals in Milwaukee”

Mike will be looking at efforts to slow the “brain drain” in Milwaukee, and what needs to be done to keep and attract young talent in the city. Previous reporting by the Lubar Center’s Milwaukee Area Project has shown the city losing thousands of young workers to other metropolitan areas. To address the problem, the Milwaukee Common Council created a Millennial Task Force. The group’s recommendations were made public in July.

Joining Mike to discuss those recommendations and efforts that are already underway will be Alderman Cavalier Johnson, president of the Common Council, and two members of the Millennial Task Force. Chairperson Marquayla Ellison is president of Social X MKE. Jeremy Fojut is co-founder and chief idea officer for NEWaukee.

The live, virtual discussion will be on September 10, at 12:15 p.m.  A link for the program will be sent to registrants with a confirmation. A recording of the live discussion will be available via the "Watch Now" button above after the program.

On the Issues events will be virtual for now, with the hope of returning to in-person events in the future.
