Maurice Woods is a renowned Creative Director at Yahoo who once dreamed of playing in the NBA, a fact that's easy to believe when encountering the 6' 10“ designer. Far from imposing, he has a quiet demeanor and soft eyes that light up when the conversation turns to a subject about which he’s passionate. 

For Woods, a passion greater than design itself is using design to change people’s lives. He has truly found fulfillment through his Inneract Project, which facilitates design mentoring for kids from troubled neighborhoods.

The University Club of Milwaukee expert panel will feature:

Maurice Woods, Senior Visual designer at Yahoo, and founder of the Inneract Project, serving disadvantaged kids.

Eve M. Hall, Ph.D., President/CEO at African American Chamber of Commerce and 2015 Business Woman of the Year by Milwaukee Biz Times.

Ken Hanson, CEO of Hanson Dodge Creative and founder of Greater Together, driving fair and just inclusion into the creative economy.

Marc V. Levine, Professor of history, economic development and urban studies at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. 

The appearance at the University Club of Milwaukee will feature cocktails, snacks and an opportunity for the creative and business communities to network. 

Tickets are $30.00 by reservation only. 

Call 414-271-2222 to reserve a seat. 

Proceeds go to supporting Greater Together’s efforts to use design to introduce young people of color to a career within Milwaukee’s creative economy, which is currently highly segregated, and not representative of the true diversity of Milwaukee.
