How Do We Shape the Future of Education?

A delegation dedicated to social innovation sought the answer this question during SIS Learning Journey: Kansas City.


A two-day tour introduced 45 Social Innovation Summit Learning Journey delegates, from foundations and corporations across the country, to the innovation education landscape in Kansas City, Missouri. The SIS Learning Journey provided an opportunity to understand firsthand the insights, programs and innovation driving social impact in KC.
