As we announced earlier this month, the Wisconsin Leadership Summit schedule has 25 panel discussions on a range of topics, and will include one day of panels on government and business, one day on education, a day on social justice, a day on health and wellness, and finally, on October 9, a day of panels focused on specific affinity groups: Black, Latino, Indigenous and Asian American, followed by a wrap-up panel on allyship moderated by our CEO Henry Sanders.
We are excited to announce that Mai J Lo Lee will moderate the Asian American panel on that day.
