Educational Attainment in Southeast Wisconsin

The Talent Dividend Initiative is a national program that seeks to increase educational attainment levels in major urban areas as part of a strategy to enhance their economic health. The initiative is spearheaded by CEOs for Cities, a network of urban leaders from the civic, business, academic and philanthropic sectors who advocate for “great cities that excel in the areas most critical to urban success: talent, connections, innovation and distinctiveness.” A key component of the group’s Talent Dividend Initiative is to build a network of local partners to focus efforts in specific metro areas.
