Voices from the Tables

Dec 14, 2017
  • Description

The report summarizes the outcomes of On the Table MKE, an initiative led by the Greater Milwaukee Foundation that provides a unique opportunity for civil conversation among people interested in building new relationships, generatingideas and igniting action for the benefit of the community and its future.

In its pilot year, thousands of people across the four county, metro Milwaukee region gathered in small groups on Oct. 17, 2017, to share a meal and discuss topics that matter as well as corresponding action – both individual and collective – that can improve quality of life in the community.

Three themes emerged as the most salient within these discussions: connecting and collaborating, education, and race, equity, and inclusion.
