Indeed, interest group influence peddling, the steady loss of middle ground, a decline in media clout have fueled our current, caustic political atmosphere.
But the problem isn’t the most important part of the equation, challenged teleconference host and KLC President and CEO Ed O’Malley. What we choose to do about it is.
The Kansas Leadership Center (KLC) will launch a massive, multi-faith, multi-year initiative called Leadership and Faith – Southeast Kansas in the Spring of 2012 by hosting five separate but simultaneous sessions of the program in that region.
The Kansas Leadership Center is inviting communities there to host the multi-faith leadership sessions.
“We are especially excited about this new program because it recognizes the history and ability of people of faith to make meaningful differences in communities,” said KLC President and CEO Ed O’Malley. “By focusing on one region to launch this effort, we hope to help people of faith build the leadership capacity necessary to address key regional health concerns in new and useful ways. We look forward to a significant and ongoing engagement with Southeast Kansas.”
