The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Employment and Training Institute conducted research studies from 1994-2014 on access of African Americans and Latinos to equal employment opportunities for the City of Milwaukee, NAACP, Private Industry Council of Milwaukee County (MAWIB/Employ Milwaukee), Milwaukee Public Schools, Helen Bader Foundation, and Greater Milwaukee Foundation. The analysis focused on labor market issues for African Americans, Hispanics and other non-Caucasian populations as critical to addressing housing integration and economic concerns in local communities. The ETI prepared a series of report cards on hiring practices and challenges for Milwaukee area companies and governments, provided customized tables showing diversity (and non-diversity) of employment by place-of-work and residence for every U.S. census tract, and offered critiques of the paradigms imbedded in academic measures of segregation in housing.
