Milwaukee City Tour
Each year there are two city tour events where we gather as a community to learn from each other. The event allows individuals from all over Wisconsin to have face-to-face conversations with others who are committed to ethical leadership and the belief that groups of people are most effective when everyone is fully engaged.
