Greater Milwaukee Urban League: Supports Leaders LeadUp™ platform to advocate for women of color in business 

MILWAUKEE, Wis. – The Greater Milwaukee Urban League is stepping up as the presenting sponsor of Leaders LeadUp™, a new online social community and learning platform for women of color in the region.

 “Greater Milwaukee Urban League is dedicated to providing and supporting opportunities that empower communities and change lives. We are thrilled to partner with Leaders LeadUp™ to kick off this important platform and the support it gives to women pursuing opportunities and excellence,” stated Dr. Eve M. Hall, president and CEO of the Greater Milwaukee Urban League 

Although Leaders LeadUp™ is directed at helping women of color navigate the workplace, the leadership development platform also provides training and insight for employers to increase their sponsorship and empathy for women, underrepresented groups, and all people of color. Training courses will be open to all. 

Leaders LeadUp™ was founded by Janette M. Braverman, founder and CEO of Leaders Leaving Legacies, LLC, a consulting firm focused on leadership development and technology solutions.

“Leaders LeadUp™ is a platform to uplift, support, and amplify the talents and voices of amazing women of color and underrepresented groups. Leaders LeadUp™ was designed to connect women of color with some of the most successful executives and entrepreneurs around the world,” Braverman stated. 

Leaders LeadUp™ will be launched Friday, March 24, at 5:30 p.m. at the University Club of Milwaukee, 924 E. Wells St. For more information about the event, visit
