For corporate, civic and community stakeholders, C3KC is a collaborative conference to spark change for a better Kansas City. This year we are proud to announce Angela Duckworth, joining us in a live conversation as our keynote speaker. Angela is the author of the bestselling Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance, founder and CEO of Character Lab, professor at the University of Pennsylvania and co-director of Penn-Wharton Behavior Change for Good Initiative and of Wharton People Analytics. Her TED talk is among the most viewed of all time.









The Junior League of Kansas City, Missouri, with more than 100 years of service to this community, brings its considerable experience and history to convening this gathering. Participants in C3KC will develop and enhance community leadership competencies that are easily transferable to their businesses and other organizations.
