The Milwaukee Healthcare Workforce Initiative (MHWI) aims to create a strong talent pipeline to healthcare careers in Milwaukee. Since the Covid-19 pandemic, hospitals have experienced a spike in staffing shortages nationwide. “In today’s climate, the need for increased numbers of trained healthcare workers is significant,” said our President and CEO, Chytania Brown. “At the same time, unemployment remains too high for people of color in Milwaukee. We’re excited to bring this solution-oriented program to the table.” MHWI aims to increase underrepresented populations access to quality Healthcare careers through training and guaranteed job interviews at Advocate Aurora Health. The program opens doors for those interested in the healthcare industry, while also building a strong, capable healthcare workforce for Wisconsin. Participants will receive no-cost training includes job shadowing, introduction to hospital operations, and an overview of healthcare career paths. Individuals who complete the training are guaranteed job interviews at Advocate Aurora Health. Employ Milwaukee, in partnership with Greater Milwaukee Urban League, Journey House, and the Social Development Commission is creating quality, no cost trainings which can open doors to healthcare careers for underrepresented populations. The program is funded by Advancing a Healthier Wisconsin Endowment.
