Michael Best's Milwaukee Office Managing Partner José Oliveri addressed the audience at the January 14 launch of the Hispanic Collaborative.

"After more than two years in the making, the Hispanic Collaborative on Monday, Jan. 14 was officially launched in Milwaukee.

"The real work is just getting started," said Nancy Hernandez, president of the Hispanic Collaborative.

The initiative was created to address disparities and opportunities in Milwaukee's Hispanic community.

"That means income levels grow, job growth, education," said Rolando Rodriguez, Marcus Theatres president and CEO.

To tackle these goals -- the committee is borrowing from the nation's top-ranking Hispanic communities -- like Baltimore and San Jose. Currently,  Milwaukee is ranked No. 39; however, the Hispanic Collaborative has set a goal to move it into the Top 10."
