Ignite: Fueling Organizational Excellence
Strengthening a Culture of Innovation at UW–Madison
Central to the university’s core mission is a commitment to the Wisconsin Idea, which states that what we do here at UW–Madison should enhance the lives of every person in the state of Wisconsin, as well as around the nation and the world. Put differently, the Wisconsin Idea is the belief that the wealth of knowledge and research at the University of Wisconsin should be utilized to improve people’s lives across the state, the country, and the world. Living the Wisconsin Idea is one of the core strategic priorities in UW–Madison’s 2020-2025 Strategic Framework.
In this session, we’ll explore how we can work individually to foster an innovation mindset and how we can work collectively to help build and strengthen a culture of mindful innovation, all to support and further our efforts to advance the Wisconsin Idea.
