Mr. Cowden will be discussing his experiences with transcending professional boundaries and the prominent role played by the KCADC in negotiating and coordinating bi-state initiatives, promoting our region as an appealing center for business, and attracting a vibrant and diverse workforce.

The challenges faced by the KCADC in coordinating efforts by separate entities, dissolving boundaries, enhancing collaborative opportunities, educating about other professions, and attracting a motivated and diverse workforce are similar to those faced by the faculty of our school. Cowden bio
