M7 Talent Partnership

The Milwaukee 7 Talent Partnership is aligning the Milwaukee Region’s talent resources with high-growth industry clusters, creating a stronger, more agile workforce.

In southeastern Wisconsin, it is essential that we grow the talent pool, reaching young people earlier to introduce them to the world of work and potential careers in the region. The Milwaukee metro area is projected to see the gap between available jobs and available workforce increase to 100,000 by 2023. These unfilled job openings are the result of modest economic growth, an aging workforce and a declining working-age population

To meet this workforce challenge, the Milwaukee 7 Talent Partnership's priorities are focused on finding and developing the talent businesses need by:
