Courageous Leadership: Chasing your Passion

Tuesday, April 9 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm • Organized By The National Black MBA Association
300 East 39th Street, Kansas City, MO 64111


There are times when a leader must make a decision on if they are to leap into a new venture or continue to grow where they are planted. During this event, The National Black MBA Association alongside Project United Knowledge will address the concepts necessary for an individual to become an entrepreneur and what resources are available. Panelists include Quest Moffat and Rebecca Dove at Project UK, Kim Randolph, CEO Heartland Black Chamber of Commerce, Shelley Coulter, Author and Founder of One Touch Leader, and I don’t have a confirmation from Elena Gann from the Kansas City, Kansas Entrepreneurship and Workforce Center.

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.
