Date Posted: October 18, 2019 Author: Steve Reed

Cottey College is pleased to present a panel of “Women Who Wow” on Thursday, October 24, at 7:30 p.m. in the Missouri Recital Hall. Admission is free, but tickets are required.

This panel discussion celebrates changemakers taking action on issues from Native rights to gender equality to food insecurity. Learn what inspired these women’s ideas, how they took action, and what you can do to make a difference in your community.

Featured panelists are Kathryn Red Corn, retired director of the Osage Tribal Museum who was also featured in first-year common reader Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI by David Grann; Brenda Mott, founder and CEO of ScrapsKC, a non-profit that offers a way for everyone to participate in caring for the Kansas City community through the reuse, repurposing, and renewal of people and things; Tatenda Ndambakuwa, Cottey College Class of 2015, the Founder of Shiri AgTech, an agricultural technology company creating mobile applications as service solutions for African farmers; and Dr. Katherine Rose-Mockry, who served as the director of the University of Kansas Emily Taylor Center for Women and Gender Equity from 2008 until her retirement this past July.

Seating is limited for this event, so tickets need to be reserved in advance. Tickets may be reserved by contacting Cottey’s Serenbetz Institute for Women’s Leadership, Social Responsibility and Global Awareness at 667-6333, ext. 2116.

The Recital Hall is inside the Haidee and Allen Wild Center for the Arts on the northeast corner of Austin and Tower streets in Nevada, Missouri.
