Go behind the scenes of Milwaukee’s tech community! Each month we’ll be exploring how companies around the city create a meaningful and positive culture in their organization. We’ve all seen the “Coolest Offices” list, but it doesn’t truly capture the culture of a workplace.

The purpose is simple. In order to grow Milwaukee’s tech community we need a space to connect and have real conversations around:
— what is needed to move our tech community forward.
— how to make environments that create excitement and attract technologists.
— space to tear down the barriers that divide us.

This revolving series includes the following:
— Company leader discussing how they make their company’s culture something all levels of a company can enjoy.
— Q&A where both the company leader and an employee living the culture will answer questions.
— Complimentary food from a local Milwaukee restaurant.
— Complimentary beverages, cocktails, or beer from local makers.

Schedule for the night:
— 5:30-6:30PM – Happy Hour
— 6:30-7:00PM – Talk
— 7:00-7:30PM – Open Source & Open Conversations
