On behalf of the Milwaukee Women inc Board of Directors, members, and our exceptional event co-chairs, Sharon Canter, Dr. Joan Prince, Lynn Sprangers, and Marilyn Volrath, and honorary chair Mary Ellen Stanek, thank you.

We are so grateful for your support of MWi’s 20th Anniversary Celebration & Recognition Event featuring Toni Townes-Whitley, former president of US Regulated Industries for Microsoft Corporation, independent director on the Nasdaq board, and board trustee of United Way Worldwide.

The event would not be possible without the tremendous support of nearly 50 sponsors. Our sponsors are a who’s who of local and state organizations. We are especially grateful for the early support of our presenting sponsor, Froedtert Health.

With your support, we are on a mission to change the face of leadership in our community.
