Celebrate the city of Milwaukee and Wisconsins’s growing Tech Ecosystem!
Governor Evers has proclaimed October as WI Tech Month in the state of WI. WI Tech Month is being presented by the Milky Way Tech Hub and Wisconsin Voices. Nadiyah Johnson, the founder of the Milky Way Tech Hub, feels it is necessary to celebrate and amplify Wisconsin’s Tech ecosystem. “We’re excited to be working with organizations throughout the state to drive awareness around the importance of technology and highlight its role in decreasing racial wealth and achievement gaps.” says Johnson.
More than 20 events have been coordinated around the state. Eau Claire, Beloit, Milwaukee, Madison, Platteville, and Kenosha are among the many participating cities. The month will kick off with Milwaukee Tech Advocacy Week (October 1st-10th). This will be a week of civic tech events that aim to equip the general public with the tools and knowledge necessary to find their voices in technology through advocacy, policy, and legislation. The week’s events will lead up to Lobby Day at the Wisconsin State Capitol building on October 8th.
