PRSA After Hours: Diverse KC

Companies and organizations strive to showcase a diversity initiative; however, it can be difficult to know where to start. When it comes to diversity, it’s easy to think of gender and ethnic background. However, diversity includes race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, sexual orientation, genetic information and the myriad of human traits, beliefs, and experiences that make each person unique.

The Greater Kansas City Public Relations Society of America chapter invites you to an after hours event celebrating diversity in the Kansas City workforce. Join us for a time of networking and for the opportunity to hear from leaders in strategic diversity initiatives.

Speakers include:

  • Michelle P. Wimes, director of strategic diversity initiatives at Shook, Hardy & Bacon
  • Michelle T. Johnson, owner of Diversity Diva Consulting, and Kansas City Star diversity contributor
  • Jeremie Ballinger, Kansas City metro area director of Special Olympics Missouri
  • Erika Ramirez, Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City

The cost for this event is $10 per person which includes hors d'oeuvres, mixed domestic and imported beer and red and white wines.

RSVPs are recommended on the KC PRSA website; however, cash or check payment (only) can be made at the door on the day of the event.

We will be live tweeting the day of the event with the hashtag #diverseKC.
