An elite squad of more than 20 talent acquisition and HR leaders, and community partners make up the TeamKC Board of Advisors. As a collective, this group oversees the creation of new talent attraction tools and guides the direction of the TeamKC initiative. 

We recently sat down with our Co-Chairs to learn more about their favorite KC spots, past times and passions. Check it out!
