Visionary League Presents: Women + Wine & Tech

Networking + Wine Tasting + Live Music + Keynote Speaker



Visionary League is proud to be partnered with Startup Milwaukee Week!


Startup Milwaukee Week (November, 11 - 17, 2019) is designed to connect, educate, and celebrate entrepreneurs in Southeast Wisconsin. The fourth annual event will showcase the Milwaukee region's emerging entrepreneurs and high-growth startups while highlighting the resources available to support entrepreneurs on their journey. The week features dozens of free workshops, pitch events, panels and networking events hosted by 50+ partner organizations in the community.




Women, Wine & Tech Event Description:

We're hosting this event for college students, business leaders, entrepreneurs, tech engineers, and Human resource professionals, to discuss Diversity and Inclusion issues in the technology field. We're looking for community members and leaders who want to work together on potential solutions in the Milwaukee area workplace.

This event will begin with appetizers, wine and networking, followed by inspirational poetry leading to a discussion on issues and experiences women have been through while being in the tech industry. Guests will be invited to break off into groups to have discussions on potential solutions. Afterward, attendees will be able to do a meet and greet with the speaker and finish the night up with connecting and networking with each other.

Visionary League is a Diversity and Inclusion organization that connects people of minority representation to opportunities in the IT and Creative Service industries. Through business partnerships, technical and design expertise, we facilitate job opportunities, Diversity and Inclusion training, creative design workshops, professional development, events, and conferences.

Our Vision is to build a visionary network of people inspired to converge tech + design within the city of Milwaukee and to take the lead for change with Diversity and Inclusion in the workplace.

Our Focus is to be a driving force to our city and Southeastern Wisconsin by connecting like-minded professionals, executives, college students, design thinkers, thought leaders, organizations, vendors, and sponsors together to help educate, give awareness, and inform the unconscious bias about the importance of Inclusion.
