Kansas City Legal Eagle Political Ladies Convene To Fight Gender Bias

This morning we share a peek at an event that's more expensive than a movie but far more captivating and useful.

First of all . . .

We should start by noting that we love to see women gather, encourage, empower and embrace one another. The soothing sounds of strong female voices gently guiding each other through the myriad of challenges presented by the corporate world seems tantalizing. As women naturally tend to drop their inhibitions around one another, we look forward to these ladies opening up and sharing a glimpse deep inside themselves and then boldly raising a fist to challenge the hegemony. 

I'm getting the meat sweats just thinking about it. 

You think they charge per hour and have lotion and Kleenex on hand?

I'm asking for a friend.

More about the invite . . .

Join AWL and Madam for America as we present this timely CLE program. Our esteemed panelists will discuss how having women and women of color in elected positions add valuable viewpoints to the decision-making process; what they are doing as currently or formerly elected officials to help train others to eliminate bias; and what issues they see in their current positions related to diversity and inclusion, and how that is shaping Missouri/Kansas public policy.

Panelists include:

- Senator Barbara Washington, Esq.
- Kansas City Public School Board Member Rita Cortes, Esq.
- Former Kansas City, Missouri Councilwoman Alissia Canady, Esq.
- Current Kansas City Councilwoman Andrea Bough, Esq.
