About 2015 YPSummit

Every April NEWaukee hosts YPWeek, a weeklong platform for discovery, adventure and meaningful conversations about the issues that matter among young professionals in 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 experiences that are important to a YP while educating employers on the role these functions play in retaining YPs as their workforce.
