On March 23, U.S. Engineering Company Holdings CEO Tyler Nottberg moderated the opening panel discussion at the 2023 C3KC conference organized by the Junior League of Kansas City, Missouri (JLKCMO). The discussion, “National Trends, Local Significance,” set up a framework for the day’s ensuing panels, exploring how Kansas City is addressing the most important challenges and opportunities it faces.

Featured panelists included Gloria Jackson-Leathers, Vice President, Kansas City Civic – Kauffman Foundation; Neal Sharma, President, dentsu shop, Co-Chair KC Rising; and Brent Never, Associate Professor, Director of Midwest Center for Nonprofit Leadership, University of Missouri-Kansas City.

Tyler asked the panel questions about fault lines and gaps in our community, about whether the right voices are being engaged to bridge divides and about the community’s health in general, including equitable access to healthcare, education and other essential services. He observed that some of the most important outcomes from the conversation related to awareness and connections between groups across the Kansas City metro area doing their best to improve resources and expand access. One example of such a resource is 211, a service provided by the United Way of Greater Kansas City connecting anyone to free and confidential help with utilities, housing, food, mental health and a broad scope of other needs.

On the event, Tyler noted, “The C3KC event is an inclusive, action-oriented and hopeful day. Business, civic and philanthropic leaders came together to initiate impactful changes. I was impressed by how much action was generated.” He went on to say, “The Junior League—including U.S. Engineering’s own Jammy Evans, who has been a volunteer for many years—did a tremendous job putting on the day. I plan on participating in the future!”

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, over 40 community entities engaged in the conference, which is also a major fundraiser for the JLKCMO.
