We have much to learn from our wise foremothers-- mystics, organizers and women of the Bible who have not been celebrated for the ways they’ve challenged patriarchal systems throughout history. It is through their work of resistance that we’re able to reimagine an alternative way, letting their stories inspire us to continue their legacy and spiritual work. Join us for a conversation and meal on November 11th at 6:30pm with Cecilia Belser Patton, co-founder of Community Alliance for Racial Equity and The Open Table antiracism trainer, as we explore the stories of our foremothers, and have the chance to share our own. We will be having a potluck meal that night, so bring a main dish or side dish to share!

Kansas City has many dynamic nonprofits doing amazing work in our communities. More often than not, diversity becomes a catch phrase when talking about the changing landscape of nonprofit leadership. This Coffee Talk will take a look at the realities of the need for more People of Color (POC) in nonprofit leadership positions and boards through intimate conversations with leaders of color. 


Bringing BlackTech Week to Kansas City for a day — and debuting the event series during Global Entrepreneurship Week — seemed like a natural fit.
