Cream City Foundation announced that US Army retired Col. Sheri Swokowski will provide the keynote address at the 9th Annual Business Equality Luncheon. Col. Swokowski is the highest ranking, out, transgender veteran in the country with 34 years of service.
“We are so honored to welcome Sheri to be our keynote speaker this year,” said Cream City Foundation President and CEO, Brett Blomme. “Her story of a long, distinguished career in the military and subsequent government service is inspiration for all of us to look to in our lives and careers.”
Cream City Foundation's 9th Annual Business Equality Luncheon is a corporate luncheon that focuses on sharing current information about the state of LGBTQ+ communities in the business sector. With approximately 500 business and community leaders in attendance, the event celebrates and promotes southeastern Wisconsin as equal, inclusive and fair for all employees, with a focus on the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer+ communities.
The luncheon takes place Friday, Sept. 22, 2017 at the Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee.
“Our work at Cream City Foundation addresses the economic, health, safety, and equity needs that prevent our LGBTQ+ communities from achieving the dream of full inclusion and acceptance,” Blomme said. “This luncheon is one of the highlights of the year for the foundation. We are so proud to have corporate partners that stand behind the important work that we do.”
