By Wendy Doyle, President & CEO, Women's Foundation
At Women’s Foundation we identify civic and workplace barriers that hold women back and find solutions to improve the lives of all women and their families. Our research on the Status of Women in Missouri and Kansas revealed an unfortunate truth - women are not adequately supported in the workplace; and it impacts their lives in profound ways. To address these findings, we identified solutions to empower women in the workplace.
As part of these ongoing efforts, we are co-sponsoring an upcoming summit, "Kansas City Works: Creating the Workplace of the Future", on Wednesday, August 10th, at the Kauffman Foundation Conference Center.
This summit, presented by Women's Foundation, the Society for Human Resource Management-Kansas City, and the City of Kansas City, Missouri, will offer engaging and timely content focused on attracting and retaining the best and brightest employees; creating equity and efficiency in the workplace; and implementing practices that support employees and their families. Sessions include:
- Creating thriving, balanced workplace environments
- Drive Business Success with Workplace Flexibility
- Any Device, Anywhere, Anytime
- Apprenticeship Models and Continued Learning
- Competitive Leave Practices
- Pay Equity Best Practices
- When Work Works

Creating effective, modern workplaces is good for business and good for women and their families. But change will not happen unless we all work together. By providing opportunities such as "Kansas City Works," we will create a conversation that empowers business leaders to work for change that makes both businesses and families stronger.
