On behalf of the Milwaukee Women inc Board of Directors, thank you to all who attended the 2023 Research and Recognition Breakfast.  

 Special thanks to our panelists – Laurie Benson, Albert Black, and Glen Tellock, who shared their insights about the important responsibility of serving on corporate boards, and for their personal stories that left us energized and inspired.

Thanks also to MWi board members Kim Stoll, Kristin Dufek, panel moderator Karen Hung, and Dr. Joan Prince for sharing the highlights of the 2023 Research Report.
