Whaddya Know About History? 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. Out city is a better one 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.
