Wisconsin Partners is a membership-based coalition of statewide associations and community-based civic groups. These organizations reflect a range of sectors, perspectives, and immediate goals, but share a commitment to collaborating for a better Wisconsin for everyone.
Every member sends one or two representatives to four Core Team meetings a year and serve on Focus Teams, which help move the work forward. We offer Huddles - spaces for informal connection and conversation - for Executive Directors, Policy & Governmental Affairs Staff, Communications & Outreach Staff, Funding Staff, and Staff focusing on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Anti-Racism efforts.
In 2023, we will be hosting a series of member conversations around Connection. We are concerned about the rates of polarization, isolation, and insulation in our communities and in our state, and share a commitment to addressing those challenges.
