D.Mesch photoIn most households, women make or influence philanthropic decisions. Couple that with their $5.15 trillion in assets, and an equal or higher amount they will inherit, women are driving philanthropy in unprecedented ways.

Dr. Mesch will explore the changing philanthropic landscape, what the research says about gender and philanthropy and strategies that appeal to women. Bottom line? Engaging women in philanthropy is smart and transformative – and the discussion with Dr. Mesch on this topic will be too.

JB+A is pleased to sponsor, for the third year in a row, the 501 (c) Success National Speaker Series, a program of Nonprofit Connect. The Series brings the brightest national “thought leaders” to Kansas City to discuss progressive topics that are relevant and timely in our industry. This is an outstanding opportunity for the Kansas City community to meet and engage with exceptional nonprofit leaders right here in our own backyard.
