Hello Milwaukee Area Professionals
With Milwaukee on a wave of energizing new life, we must translate that into the torch of NSBE in making our presence felt. As we commence on the 2019-2020 fiscal year, I aim to continue to enrich the STEM community of the city in my position as President. Our chapter serves as a conduit for the engineering professionals in Milwaukee to support NSBE’s mission and programming on a local level.
The first step is building our social media footprint and professional partnerships. If you are not LinkedIn, following or Friends with the NSBE Milwaukee Area Professionals (MAP), connect with us today. This is where you’d be first to know all of the amazing professional development and outreach opportunities the executive board is curating just for you. There are multiple corporations that we are tapping into to make sure the right people are at the table to have strong conversations of growth and advancement.
The second is to engage in the community with our signature programming. INSPIRE (Inspiring NSBE Students and Professionals In Research and Engineering) exposes our collegiate counterparts to industry leaders that are looking for local talent and aids the scholarships NSBE MAP grants to collegiate and high school students. Professional Partners In the Classroom, PPIC, provides high school students with perspectives and paths to successful college careers while connecting these students with career professionals in STEM. Also, the ongoing partnership with Beyond STEM nurtures the curious minds of middle school students across an array of engineering disciplines.
Lastly, we urge to foster the STEM leader in each of YOU. Feel the urgency of our mission statement and be a walking testimony. Share your NSBE story with your peers, co-workers and families. Together, each year will be greater than the last as we continue to “increase the number of culturally responsible Black Engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally and positively impact the community”.
Yours in service,
