AFP MO, Mid-America Chapter: Fundraising Dialogue Series: Women in Philanthropy (BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND)January 30, 2014
Whaddya Know About History? Not Much? How Issues of Gender, Race, and Class Shaped Philanthropy in Kansas City - Then and Now
Women in Kansas City helped shape and were shaped by national trends in activism, charity, and philanthropy. Kansas City is a better city today because of the institutions that early Kansas City women founded, the ideas they advocated, and the examples they set for women (and men) to follow. Come learn about the interesting history of philanthropy’s origins in Kansas City, the women who propelled it onto a path that continues to impact us – and our organizations, and the lingering effects of gender, race and class issues in our community. Then engage in a conversation with your colleagues about the implications of race, class and gender in the practice of philanthropy today.
This program is restricted to members of AFP Mid-America Chapter and Nonprofit Connect.
