The discussion will center on how these dynamics affect Milwaukee residents’ ability to access ladders of opportunity, including education, workforce development, and the social safety net. The discussion will be forward looking, focusing on how Milwaukee can use policy levers to build on existing foundations and address challenges, including economic and racial segregation, in order to create growth and prosperity.
