Toward One Wisconsin 2020

A Conference on Building Communities of Equity and Opportunity

November 11-13, 2020

The 2020 Toward One Wisconsin Conference Committee has heeded the call from participants in the 2019 Toward One Wisconsin conference to immediately begin planning for 2020 which will be online. The community stepped forward enthusiastically to launch it with us.

Then we had to reckon as a state and nation with the repeated, horrific violence of racism, while a pandemic forced us to see racism as a public health crisis. It also forced us to delay the conference. But we cannot delay the work.

With a great sense of urgency, we invite you to join a growing and powerful network that reaches across sectors to every corner of the state to take this challenge head on. We are mining the art and potential of gathering through technology instead of in person, excited by the experts that can be brought together, for the interactive exchanges that can happen.
