The Cultural Competency Collective of Greater Kansas City has built a large following of professionals and organizations and momentum to bring about change in health and human service care over the last 10 years – drawing support from civic community leaders representing Kansas City’s rich array of professional fields and community interests. We are excited to celebrate the Collective’s 10th anniversary and acknowledge the many culturally competent health and human service organizations that have contributed to the Collective’s successes since it’s inception.
