The Appointments Project® and Ready to Run® Kansas Women’s Leadership Series represents a collaboration between the Women’s Foundation and the Institute for Leadership Studies at the University of Kansas. The collaboration is built on a shared belief that increasing the number of women’s voices in civic spaces throughout Kansas – including politics and civic boards and commissions – promotes equity, opportunity, and economic strength in our state. Kansas is built on a rich history of women’s civic leadership at all levels of our social fabric, and a bright future for our state will depend on their leadership driving our social, political, and economic engines.
Through this collaboration, it is our mission to provide workshops and programming that enhance women’s civic leadership capacity. And it is our vision that as we increase the number of women prepared to run for political office and sit on local and statewide boards and commissions, our state will thrive.
