Attorney Completes "Future Milwaukee" Program

September 05, 2013

In 2012 and 2013, Godfrey & Kahn sponsored associate Matt Kemp's participation in the Future Milwaukee community leadership program offered by Marquette University's College of Professional Studies. Kemp and the other participants learned about current challenges facing the community through meetings with a variety of local organizations. Topics that the group explored included arts education with the Milwaukee Youth Symphony Orchestra and First Stage; urban agriculture and nutrition with Walnut Way and the Fondy Farmers Market; environmental education with the Urban Ecology Center; and women's health issues with St. Joseph's Hospital. The class also had the opportunity to meet in a small group setting with local political leaders, including Mayor Tom Barrett and Development Director Rocky Marcoux. Participants also received training in leadership development through lectures and discussions, and they worked in small groups to create original projects aimed at benefitting the community. Kemp's group explored the area of arts education.

Future Milwaukee has been running for more than 30 years and boasts over 1,400 alums, including several other Godfrey & Kahn attorneys. "Future Milwaukee was a great way to get to know the city better," said Kemp. " I think all of the participants, myself included, came away with some valuable new connections and friends, a deeper appreciation of the issues the city faces, and a strong sense of optimism that we can eventually solve those issues."
