Joel Quadracci, Quad’s chairman, president and CEO, is one of 25 Southeastern Wisconsin business leaders selected by BizTimes Milwaukee to share big ideas for Milwaukee’s future.
“For change to occur, we must create employment opportunity equity through serious investments in targeted programs for underrepresented neighborhoods that are teeming with talent but have little to no employment opportunities,” Joel writes. “This means finding creative ways to connect people to jobs through education, job and life-skills training, and transportation.”
One of the ways Quad is acting on its commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion is by bringing The BrandLab to Milwaukee. This program pairs high school students from diverse ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds with internship opportunities at advertising and marketing agencies, and within corporate creative teams.
