Valuing Partnerships and Diversity
At MCW, we believe the only way to build a healthier world, is to build it together. MCW has many partnerships and we value these partnerships. Whether it is with other academic or healthcare institutions, or the countless businesses or community organizations across the greater Milwaukee area and beyond, we know these partnerships are the key to improving health. We also believe that embracing human differences is critical to realize our vision of a healthier world, and we recognize that a healthy and thriving community starts from within. We strive for a culture of inclusive excellence that enables us to eliminate health and well-being disparities by addressing social equity, determinants of health and health justice through partnership and generational commitments in and with our community.
Advancing a Healthier Wisconsin
AHW reaches statewide, propelling the most promising work and ideas to build a healthier Wisconsin for generations to come. The endowment advances research that improves lives, helps educate future health leaders for all of Wisconsin and assists partners in creating real change, leading to better policies, systems and programs so we can all enjoy better health.
MCW, the Greater Milwaukee Foundation and Royal Capital Group maintain a joint vision for a Milwaukee that is equitable, healthy and thriving for all. Achieving this vision requires focusing on places where investment has been scarce and supporting people of color, who are disproportionately affected by health and social disparities.
Equity, Diversity and Inclusion
MCW envisions a healthier world that is just, equitable and thriving for everyone, a world where social and human differences are drivers of health and well-being, not barriers. We are committed to the intentional actions it will take to achieve this vision.
