LiNE (Leadership in the New Economy) Event 2019

Led by TEMPO member, Tracy Williams-Maclin, Senior Director of External Relations, Partnerships and Development, The Office of the Deputy Vice Chancellor for Diversity and Inclusion at UW-Madison hosted the Leadership in the New Economy (LINE) Event 2019.  Business expert and entrepreneur Thomas K.R. Stovall led a “Think Tank”style workshop “Igniting an Entrepreneurial Mindset,” rapid-fire exercises on how to turn intention into action when starting a business. The workshop provided the opportunity for diverse scholars to not only cultivate a growth mindset, but to serve as thought leaders in an high-impact educational opportunity.  Nearly 250 participants attended the two-part event in October, where alumni and community leaders came to meet and mentor UW scholars and to engage in conversations related to post-graduation opportunities. 

The event was sponsored by the American Family Institute for Social and Corporate Impact, US Bank, UW Women’s Philanthropy Council, Discovery to Product, and the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation.
