    TEMPOShares and Madison Club Thank you

    Liz Henry, Owner, CMO, Henry Farms Prairie Spirits, LLC
    I would like to thank the Madison Club servers and staff for making every effort to provide us with delicious meals and excellent service. I would especially like to note the effort and care that David Giniocchio and the bar staff take to create and serve beautiful cocktails for our Tempo Shares event. This year they created two drinks to appeal to most tastes and provided recipes – we could not ask for a better partnership and this makes sponsoring the cocktail easy and fun. Thank you Tempo and Madison Club Team. Cheers!

    For Peter Pan on Her 70th Birthday by Sarah Ruhl|
    November 7-24, 2019
    The Playhouse at Overture Center, 201 State St., Madison

    Ann and her four siblings gather at their childhood home to crack jokes, argue politics, and share stories. For Ann, each reminiscence brings her back to a favorite childhood memory: her star turn as Peter Pan on their hometown stage.

    Soon, these brothers and sisters hear the call of Neverland, a magical place where the refusal to grow up does battle with the inevitability of growing old. A loving mixture of deathbed vigils, marching bands, the aches and pains of aging and the miracle of flight, For Peter Pan on her 70th Birthday celebrates all the magic that theater – and life – have to offer.

    Helping Position TEMPO Women for Business Boards

    Kristine Euclide and Kim Sponem, project co-chairs

    TEMPO has launched a 2019-2021 initiative called PROJECT REACH to build better business boards by making them more diverse.  The initiative will focus on increasing the number of TEMPO women on business boards. The TEMPO Board appointed a Steering Committee to lead this effort-- Kristine Euclide and Kim Sponem (co-chairs), Donna Beestman, Beth Bennett, Kathy Blumenfeld, Theola Carter,  Sue Anne Kaestner, Kelda Roys, and Shana Lewis (ex-officio).  As co-chairs of this project, we were asked to briefly share something about our business board experience. In a future article we will talk more about the initiative and about why we find business board service rewarding. Most importantly, if you would like to learn more about Project REACH, keep watching for updates and feel free to contact  any of the Steering Committee members.

    We both have extensive experience with a mix of community, professional and business boards, often in leadership roles.  Kristine is currently Board Chair for WPS Health Solutions.  She previously was Managing Partner at Stafford Rosenbaum Law Firm and, in her role as Sr VP and General Counsel at MGE, she frequently interacted with the MGE Board. She also served on the MGE Foundation Board.  Over the past 35 years, and continuing today, Kris  holds leadership positions on numerous community boards at the local and state level. 

    Kim currently serves on the business boards of Society Insurance and WPS Health Solutions.  As CEO of Summit Credit Union, she reports to a 9-member board. She also is currently on several community boards and industry boards (Chair of Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce, Oscar Rennebohm Foundation, Credit Union Executive Society, Consumer Federation of America).  She also has a long history of service on community and professional boards at the local, state and national levels.

    Again, please let us know if you are interested in getting involved with Project REACH!

    Before you nominate, please review TEMPO’s membership criteria and follow our tried-and-true nomination process.   Here is a quick guide (note, for more detailed information, see the article in the August (Mid-Month), 2019 newsletter).

    TEMPO Madison bylaws require that members meet the following criteria:
    • 10+ years professional experience*        
    • 5+ years executive level professional experience 
    • Decision-making responsibility for staff and budget
    • Direct access to the organization's top executive
    • Leadership in professional and/or civic organizations
    The Membership Committee and Board of Directors also review nominations to ensure that our membership is diverse in terms of sector, industry, professional background, company/organization, race, ethnicity, and culture.  The board and the membership committee urge you to nominate women who will broaden our membership in one of these ways.

    TEMPO’s nomination process is, by design, not very transparent to the nominee.  TEMPO members have spoken loudly and clearly that they value TEMPO’s community of high-achieving peers at the peak of their careers, and the chance to learn new things and interact with a diverse group of women, in the broadest sense. Therefore, please remember that TEMPO does not extend membership to everyone who might be interested. 
    • Any current TEMPO member may nominate a woman for membership.  Nominees should have attended at least one monthly luncheon as a guest. 
    • Do not inform your nominee that she is being considered for membership.  If you are nominating at the request of a possible candidate, PLEASE DO NOT PROMISE OR IMPLY THAT SHE WILL BE OFFERED This helps protect the integrity of the process, as well as the feelings/reputations of all involved.
    Members may obtain a nomination form by emailing Megan Purtell at tempomadison@tempomadison.org.

    AnchorDefender of Potential.

    These are the words that define Sandy Morales. As the CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Dane County and one of the founders of Latino Professional Association of Greater Madison, Sandy has dedicated her life to uplifting others.

    With an emphasis on cultivating strong, lasting, and meaningful relationships, Sandy enters each conversation with the goal of creating and maintaining genuine connections. She believes that this method of approach is key to the mentoring relationship, which has been such an important aspect of her life. Perhaps Maya Angelou describes it best by stating, “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

    Mrs. Morales, takes these words to heart as she interacts and mentors those around her. As you speak with Sandy, her passion for mentoring and seeing others’ potential radiates from her. Sandy recounted on how mentoring has impacted her life in the past and how she now has the privilege and opportunity to mentor others.

    Sandy started at United Way before moving to a Development Director position at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Dane County (BBBS). Prior to this position at BBBS, Sandy was mentored by the CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Dane County. It was through this relationship that she was able to join BBBS and create a network that supported her as she pursued the CEO position.

    This pursuit emphasized that being genuine and willing to learn outweighs the need to meet all requirements of a position. Sandy is thankful to those who believed in her throughout this process and recognizes that this empowers her to let the young people know that she believes in them and all they aspire to be in life.

    Sandy’s profession allows her to foster relationships every day that makes a difference in the lives of others. Whether we are talking about those who participate in one-on-one mentoring through BBBS or the connections that members of the Latino Professional Association of Greater Madison make with corporate partners, Sandy’s dedication to serving others is evident.

    Sandy notes that part of what makes her profession so great, beyond impacting the lives of youth and Latino professionals, is knowing that she works among others who share this same passion. Together they are willing to do whatever it takes to achieve their mission as Defenders of Potential.

    Sandy lives out the words of Maya Angelou through her everyday interactions, as she sees what others have to offer and does what she can to help them flourish. This November, let’s be thankful for those who have helped us get to where we are while also considering how we too, can be Defenders of Potential.

    It is hard to know what to think about the status of women in business today.  This past month, I read the article in the Huffington Post about the seminar offered by accounting giant, Ernst & Young, to its female executives, which included advice about the importance of manicured nails and the right skirt length, and compared the brains of women and men to different breakfast entrees, i.e., “Women’s brains absorb information like pancakes soak up syrup so it’s hard for them to focus, the attendees were told.  Men’s brains are more like waffles.  They’re better able to focus because the information collects in each little waffle square.”  It was deflating and disappointing to read about such institutional misogyny. 

    However, I literally read this article moments after reading Milwaukee Women’s Inc.’s Building Momentum! 2019 Research Report, which described the organization’s progress toward its goal of increasing the number of women directors in the Top 50 Wisconsin Public Companies to 25% by 2025.  As Milwaukee Women, Inc., explains, they have already achieved their goal of 20% by 2020, so they are well on their way.  In direct contrast with the Huffington Post article, this report was inspiring and uplifting. 

    Milwaukee Women, Inc., is a nonprofit organization dedicated to achieving balanced representation of women on boards of directors to maximize the performance of Wisconsin businesses.  The members of Milwaukee Women, Inc., have been working on this effort since 2002.  TEMPO Madison has recently taken on a similar objective with the Project Reach Committee, whose mission is to increase the number TEMPO Madison members serving on corporate and business boards. The Committee is already planning for surveys, workshops, mentoring, and networking opportunities, designed to get our members ready for corporate and business board service and to make sure corporations and businesses looking for board members know that TEMPO Madison is a great resource.  In upcoming TEMPO Madison newsletters, we will provide you with additional information about Project Reach and how to get involved. 

    In addition, TEMPO Madison’s second leadership series breakfast, in partnership with the Wisconsin Evening & Executive MBA Programs at University of Wisconsin-Madison, along with exclusive sponsor, Summit Credit Union, will highlight the issue of women on corporate and business boards.  Lindsey Hammerer, who is a partner at KPMG and chair of Milwaukee Women, Inc., will be discussing pathways to corporate board leadership to change the face and quality of leadership in the Wisconsin business community by increasing the number of women corporate directors.  Please consider registering for the breakfast event, which is scheduled to take place on April 28, 2020, at the Madison Club, starting at 7:30 a.m.
    After considering the depressing messages from the Ernst & Young seminar and the encouraging news of the Milwaukee Women, Inc., report, I am left to conclude that we have come a long way, but there is still a lot of work to do, so we mustn’t lose focus.

    Shana Lewis, 2019-2020 President
