Spark Change for a Better Kansas City – SOLD OUT!

March 23, 2023
Union Station Kansas City
30 West Pershing Road

C3KC is a collaborative conference that brings together the civic, corporate, and nonprofit communities to spark change for a better Kansas City. Now in its sixth year, C3KC has quickly become a cornerstone of change, presenting relevant and cutting-edge topics focused on social innovation. Panel discussions led by local and national thought leaders provide attendees with opportunities to engage, exchange ideas, and network.

This year’s event will honor Dr. Michael Weaver with the Branton/Hall Community Collaborator Award and feature a keynote address from New York Times bestselling author, Amanda Ripley (you may know her from her books High Conflict and The Smartest Kids in the World).




C3KC is also a major fundraiser for the Junior League of Kansas City, Missouri (JLKCMO).  In 2021, C3KC earned an award from the Association of Junior Leagues International (AJLI) in recognition of its accomplishments toward facilitating conversations impacting the three sectors and raising substantial funds that have been channeled back into the metro area.
