GMLC 2018 class members enjoyed an inspiring Session II during early June. It was the second session for the 29th year class of the Greater Missouri Leadership Challenge!

During Session II, our class experiences took our leaders throughout the Kansas City area, where their focus was to gain a broader understanding of diversity, race relations, urban renewal and economic development, as well as key issues affecting Missouri’s non-profit agencies.  They visited some community agencies, learned from key leaders of organizations serving the homeless, visited a revitalized urban neighborhood, and visited and learned from leaders of a women’s shelter.

Our leaders learned about hunger and about the workings of Harvesters, Kansas City area’s food bank.  They continued their study of “Strengths Based Leadership” that they began during Session I and they learned some key insights about leadership from Kansas City area women CEOs.

“Amazing session!” and “I learned more from this session than I ever expected.  It has truly opened my eyes to the need that is out there.” were comments voiced by Challengers in their reviews.
