Collab Lab 33: Career interviews project
Thursday March 12, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm
What if high school students thinking about college or career options could hear the stories of how people doing interesting work in Milwaukee recognized the opportunity and developed the skills they now rely on?
We’re working with high school teachers and faculty in UWM’s English department to develop and pilot a process to collect and present these stories. This fall UWM students conducted one hour interviews with folks in careers that touch on healthcare. This semester, UWM students will be joined by a group from New Berlin’s Eisenhower High School to interview members of Milwaukee’s tech community.
This is your chance to hear from folks who were part of the process and share your ideas and feedback as well look towards next year. Join us to connect with K-12 colleagues from across the area, as well as community partners from higher ed, industry, and non-profits to share ideas and explore options where collaborative efforts could help move this along.
5:30 – 6:00 Grab something to eat and drink, say hello
6:00 – 6:30 Introductions
6:30- 8:30 Let’s work through some ideas
Food and beverage will be provided. There is no charge for participation but space is limited!
