BRINGING THE WORLD TO YOU
The DiverseKC initiative was started by Global Ties KC in 2020 to shine light on the vibrant international communities and global ties that connect the heartland to the world.
The team at Global Ties KC believes that every citizen has both the right and the responsibility to engage in citizen diplomacy; engaging with world cultures to create mutual understanding. Building global relationships starts with the simple exchange of ideas, information, art, language, and other aspects of culture among nations and their peoples.
The first step? Learning about the globe and your role in it.
Over the last decade, I’ve seen thousands of international visitors come to Kansas City on Department of State and Global Ties KC collaborative programs. The number one thing we hear from visitors time and time again? They are amazed by how caring, welcoming and curious they find our community to be. I couldn’t be more proud to call the Midwest home, and am eternally grateful for each and every citizen diplomat in our community.
