K-20 Subcommittee

The K-20 Subcommittee seeks to engage with organizations in the greater Milwaukee region that would like to be actively engaged in our collective efforts.

Coalition Mission:  Inclusively expand tech talent in the Milwaukee region to drive regional economic success, foster new opportunities in tech, and meet Employers’ growing need for skilled tech talent that is representative of the community.

K-20 Objective:  All students in the greater MKE region understand their potential to contribute to the #mketech ecosystem to increase retention of graduates with diverse backgrounds interested in working in tech related fields.

K-20 Values: Strategies increase the likelihood for the upward mobility of underrepresented populations and reinforce Coalition members as employers of choice.
