Description

Claim your seat at the table and join the Appointments Project® for a free civic engagement workshop at our November 14 Lunch and Learn presented by Favel Jens. Learn more about opportunities to serve on a civic board or commission and join a network of women dedicated to making positive change. More than 115 women have been appointed to civic boards and commissions through this initiative – and you could be next!

Favel Jens is the Director of Engagement for the Women’s Foundation. She currently heads up the Foundation’s signature program - the Appointments Project®.

To increase women’s limited civic engagement, the Appointments Project® trains and recruits women across Kansas and Missouri to have a voice at decision-making tables by stepping up and serving on civic boards and commissions.

The Appointments Project® began five years ago with a single partnership with Kansas City, Mo. Today, this project has expanded to 24 cities and four counties across both Missouri and Kansas. We also recently celebrated our 115th woman being appointed.

Favel joined the Women’s Foundation in 2018. Prior experience includes 20 years working on legislation and coalition building in California with a focus issues such as raising the minimum wage, safe hospital staffing ratios, Medicaid expansion and childcare.

Favel is a Midwest native, and received her BA in Journalism from the University of Oklahoma. She looks forward to reacquainting herself with the Midwest and her new home- Kansas City.
