With the new national strategic plan rolled out August 1, 2018, and the August 20 announcement of the Missouri/Kansas Start Smart/Work Smart it looks like we will have a busy and exciting several years. We will continue to work on pay equity, get out the vote, leadership training, Title IX, and closing the gender gap.
