Last updated on July 2nd, 2019 at 09:48 am

Cardinal Stritch University Leadership Center has teamed up with Marquette University’s College of Professional Studies to conduct a three-event series entitled Building a Better Milwaukee. The series will focus on ways neighborhoods can utilize strengths to build a better city.
“We are very excited to be partnering with Marquette University to help bring this speaker series to Milwaukee,” said Dr. Peter Holbrook, executive director of the Stritch Leadership Center. “The series will hopefully create strong community relationships and help people understand how powerful we all can be when we work together.”
The series will kick off on Wednesday, Nov. 2. The seminar, “Creating Abundance Together” will feature John McKinight and Peter Block, authors of “The Abundant Community: Awakening the Power of Families and Neighborhoods,” and Walter Brueggemann, scripture scholar and author of “Journey to the Common Good.”  The three speakers will examine how associations, institutions and citizens can create relationships that allow each to collaborate and create a better community.
Parts two and three of the series will take place in early 2012.
“Conversations about our challenges–whether they be within a neighborhood, a city, or even a nation–often start from a place of what we do not have, what we lack, or what we need,” said Yvonne Lumsden-Dill series organizer from Stritch’s Leadership Center. “This process will allow us to move from a narrative of scarcity to one of abundance.”
