For the 2019 Community Engagement Symposium, we are focusing our gathering around "Six Pathways to Public Engagement," as identified by Stanford University's Haas Center for Public Service ( . The Haas Center's Pathways highlight the multiple opportunities and activities that contribute and influence the public good. These include: Direct Service, Policy and Government, Social Entrepreneurship and Corporate Social Responsibility, Community Engaged Learning and Research, Community Organizing and Activism, and Philanthropy. For our discussion, we would like to highlight how all of these different sectors of community collaborate to address social inequity in our communities. Our goal is to stimulate increased partnerships within these sectors.

To guide us in this daylong conversation, we have invited six speakers, one representative from each of these "Pathways," to tell the story about how their work and how their organizations address social justice in Milwaukee. Each representative will have about 10-12 minutes to tell their story.
