POWER of Diversity
Join us for the 2022 POWER of Diversity Breakfast, the region’s premier celebration of KC’s culturally diverse business community. This incredible event recognizes individual members of the region’s workforce who have demonstrated a commitment to diversity and inclusion, and we honor those individuals with the Ace Awards. We also name our Champion of Diversity Award winners. This award is presented to a business and a nonprofit organization that epitomize Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in their workforce, internal best practices, and community engagement.
Not only will the award winners be honored, but attendees will also learn how to strengthen their workforce by broadening the talent pool. The Marshall Project’s Ebony Reed will moderate a panel of Kansas City small business owners who have found success by including returning citizens, people with disabilities, and immigrants and refugees in their talent pool and workforce.
