The United Way of Marathon County and their community partners will release the results of the annual LIFE Report at a free event Friday.

The report is presented every two years and is a resource to acknowledge the strengths of the community, while identifying challenges and advance community conversations and partnerships.

Friday’s presentation will focus on diversity, inclusion and belonging in our community and be presented by a panel discussion including four local experts from varying fields and backgrounds.

Blake Opal-Wahoske, Executive Director, Wausau River District; MaiGer Moua, Crisis Operations Manager of North Central Health Care; Gwen Taylor, Director of Program and Inclusion at Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes and Jonette Arms, Executive Director, Aging and Disability Resource Center of Central Wisconsin will speak at the event.

The form will be held from 8 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. Jan. 24 at the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point at Wausau Center for Civic Engagement, 625 Stewart Ave., Wausau.
