DMers Volunteer: Milwaukee Repertory Theater’s Immersion Day

On a recent Immersion Day at Milwaukee Repertory Theater more than 700 middle school and high school students came together to learn about theater through demonstrations and discussions, followed by a matinee performance of Thornton Wilder’s Our Town in the Quadracci Powerhouse Theater. Digital Measures volunteers were there to lend a hand. The Rep hosts more than 20,000 students per year, partnering with more than 250 schools for its Reading Residency program. The Rep hosts numerous Immersion Days throughout the year, which serve the culmination of the Reading Residency for students. Here’s a look at our day—thanks for the opportunity for DMers to share the love of theater with Milwaukee-area students!  Continue reading “DMers Volunteer: Milwaukee Repertory Theater’s Immersion Day”

Client Insight Boards Offer Information & Inspiration

For an open, honest, multi-directional exchange of ideas, nothing beats a group of people with a vital shared interest. Digital Measures was founded by entrepreneur and then-student Matt Bartel, who saw a need—capturing information digitally from the start, rather than gathering information on paper—and set about creating a solution to streamline that process. Matt’s initial inspiration and his approach of engaging higher education professionals in conversation continue to define DM’s approach to creating solutions. We engage faculty, department chairs, deans and provosts in conversation several ways, including our Client Insight Boards (CIBs). Here’s a Q&A with Kate Kaczmarczik, Product Marketing Manager and Insight Board coordinator, about how our Insight Boards inspire products and inform new features and functionality.

DMers Volunteer: Giving Back in 2017

Giving back matters. That’s why Digital Measures provides all DMers two paid days per year to volunteer and offers multiple community outreach opportunities to get involved.  And, DMers always step up contributing more than 1,000 hours to various non-profits.

In 2017, volunteers from DM:

  • Shared college experiences with high school students through College Possible
  • Staffed a phone bank for 88Nine Radio Milwaukee
  • Got our hands dirty helping the Victory Garden Initiative, the Hunger Task Force Farm and the Urban Ecology Center
  • Collected food donations during a pre-Thanksgiving drive for Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin
  • Gave the gift of blood during a Blood Center of Wisconsin donation drive
  • Educated the community and led tours during Doors Open Milwaukee

And those are just the volunteer opportunities organized by DM. DMers also give their time to a range of organizations, from those helping animals to supporting the arts and other causes.

It’s deeply rewarding to give back to a community that’s been Digital Measures home for 18 years. Thanks, Milwaukee!
