Policy & Power: Leveraging Your Political Capital

Monday, April 8 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm • Organized By Multicultural Business Coalition
1722 East 17th Terrace, Kansas City, MO 64106


Business owners have a significant hand in the economic growth of a community, and this conversation will highlight how and where to use this experience to impact local, state, and even national policies. From Policy 101 to existing initiatives to get involved with, we’ll show you how to best engage policymakers and elected officials, and leave with tactics to help ensure your voice is heard.

Refreshments will be provided.

This conversation will be followed by the opportunity to do a one on one consultation with representatives from the Women’s Business Development Center, Mountain Plains Minority Supplier Development Council, and others.

This event is hosted in collaboration with the Multicultural Business Coalition Tour Week. The Multicultural Business Coalition (MBC) is honored to host the MBC Tour Week April 8-13, a week of curated programming hosted by the Coalition’s members.
