What does the future hold for Milwaukee, and what are the issues that matter most to young professionals in the city? As the president of NEWaukee, Angela Damiani runs a “social architecture firm” with a growing influence in the Milwaukee area. NEWaukee was founded in 2009, and in its early years focused on hosting social events for young professionals. Since then, NEWaukee has expanded its mission, organizing that demographic around high-profile issues, and helping major employers attract, engage, and retain young talent. Damiani worked as a journalist in Athens, Greece, before settling in Milwaukee and starting a boutique public relations agency. During her visit to Eckstein Hall, Damiani will offer a millennial’s view of Milwaukee, and explain why she believes NEWaukee is part of a movement that will help the city reach its full potential.
