By - Apr 19th, 2018 05:32 pm


YPWeek returns to Milwaukee April 20. The annual week-long series of events is focused on young professionals and those young at heart. The events are designed to create a conversation between employers and young professionals. Hosted by social architecture firm NEWaukee, over 30 events are planned in Milwaukee through April 28th.

NEWaukee started YPWeek in 2012 and has now expanded the event to 27 communities throughout Wisconsin.

Here are five events I’m looking forward to. Find something that best fits your interest at
