About Us

Since our inception in 2006, TEMPO Racine has left an indelible mark on women leaders and the organizations they represent through our monthly member meetings. TEMPO Racine has developed a reputation for bringing together women from a variety of industries, titles and stages of their careers, all who are making an impact in business and across our community.   

The purpose of TEMPO Racine is to provide members with opportunities to network with leaders and future leaders, to enhance their awareness of issues and trends having an impact on Racine and the business community, and to participate in the active contribution of TEMPO Racine as a group to the future success of the business community and the region. 


We are proud to be part of the TEMPO network and to partner with TEMPO Milwaukee in a variety of ways that help us collectively advance our mission and vision.

History

TEMPO Racine is affiliated with the TEMPO network. In 1975, for most women, regardless of talent, competence or position were kept outside of Wisconsin’s power structure. On February 6, 1975, a handful of women in Milwaukee set out to change the landscape for women. They gathered to participate in the first TEMPO Business and Professional Women’s Club of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, which has grown and evolved into what is known today as TEMPO Milwaukee. The hope of the founding members was to create a society where women hold an equal place in leadership, policy, and decision-making. The organization has remained true to its foundational mission and continues to evolve and spread across the state, region and country. TEMPO Racine developed as a result of this movement in 2006. Our organization looks to the future as an opportunity to grow, develop and create more awareness of the organization.
