Nonprofit Excellence Awards
BizTimes Media presents the fifth annual awards program to salute southeastern Wisconsin’s best corporate citizens and most effective nonprofit organizations.
Trauma's Effect on Milwaukee's Workforce
Psychological trauma knows no boundaries, damaging individuals in urban and rural areas and harming the social and economic systems in which they live. In the workplace, trauma often translates to absenteeism, difficulty establishing professional relationships and poor decision making. Learn more about trauma from Dr. Mike Lovell, president of Marquette University, Amy Lovell, president of REDgen, and Frank Cumberbatch, vice president of engagement for Bader Philanthropies – and see how you can help guide our community toward solutions.
Immediately following the presentation, the Nonprofit Excellence Awards were presented.
