Glenn HarrisThe KC Chamber’s POWER of Diversity Breakfast is the region’s premier celebration of the metro area’s culturally diverse business community, recognizing diverse workforce members and corporations that have demonstrated a commitment to diversity and inclusion.

The Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce values and promotes diversity because it enhances the business community and the economic development of the region through: increasing regional and global business development; expanded educational opportunities; and creating a robust community infrastructure that encourages all community members to make contributions using their special talents, expertise and knowledge. The KC Chamber will present ACE Awards to mid-to-senior level diverse managers who are having a positive impact on their company’s profitability and increasing their diversity efforts in the workplace. A Supplier Diversity ACE Award will go to a mid-to-senior level diverse manager who is accomplishing dramatic growth in increasing supplier diversity.

Our keynote speaker this year is Glenn Harris, president of the new Race Forward, the union of Race Forward and Center for Social Inclusion, and publisher of Colorlines. Read more about Glenn Harris >>
