About Young Professionals Week

YPWeek is a weeklong platform for discovery, adventure and deliberate conversations about the issues that matter among young professionals throughout the state of Wisconsin. YPWeek brings together key leaders in the community, at purposefully chosen locations that integrate the unique cultural assets with meaningful learning or social interaction.
 
The activities engage the millennial workforce in activities and experiences that are important to them while educating employers on the important role these functions play in retaining their workforce. Visit www.ypweek.com to learn more about the statewide initiative.
