Due to Covid-19 we will be cancelling this year’s Women of Color Conference. We appreciate all of our supporters throughout the years and look forward to seeing you next year.

The 2020 Women of Color Leadership Conference Committee asks for your support of our 15th Annual Women of Color Leadership Conference to be held on Friday, June 5th, 2020 at the University of Missouri Kansas City in the Student Union Center. The mission of this conference is to provide an environment for, by and about Women of Color that promotes equity, education and professional development.  The Theme for this year’s conference is “Leveraging our Power in 2020”.

Through this conference, we celebrate the accomplishments and pursuits of Women of Color in the Kansas City area and also, encourage and empower each other with skills and tools to build upon our personal, civic and professional successes. We annually host more than 350 women, while also extending the mission to serve nearly 300 young women of color in a related High School/Collegiate Connection conference day that will take place this year on March 5, 2020.
