The Madison Region is strengthening the ties between our business community, our education community and our future workforce. But, we need your help to make sure the initiative is successful. Currently, Inspire Madison Region covers Columbia, Dane, Dodge, Green, Iowa, Jefferson, and Sauk Counties. Additional counties that take part under Prosperity Southwest Wisconsin are Crawford, Grant, LaFayette and Richland Counties. In addition, Inspire Rock County has also merged databases with Inspire Madison Region to give students, educators and employers mutual access to each other in both initiatives.
Inspire Madison Region is part of a statewide initiative called Inspire Wisconsin, and works as part of a larger career-readiness movement called Career-ready Wisconsin.
