What is your global story? Do you get the chance to share it?
We value our members and the unique insights, international experience, and sincere desire to understand the world they bring to the IRC network and the Kansas City community. Our members come from a wide range of backgrounds and include community leaders, international business people, university faculty, students, and other individuals interested in deepening their global awareness. We warmly welcome your interest and involvement.
Why join the International Relations Council?
Apolitical, nonpartisan organizations like the IRC are uniquely poised to temper the polarization and heal the divisions we see every day. We create opportunities for informed civil discourse. We foster skills like active listening, critical thinking, empathy, and media literacy. Skills that have the power to heal social fabric and our connections with each other. How can we do international relations, after all, if we can’t do interpersonal relations?
The IRC is unique among membership organizations. Our shared interest in and curiosity about the world brings us together. Where else can you find students alongside retirees, working professionals alongside gap-year travelers, community leaders alongside interested members of the community? At the IRC, you can find all of these, along with a place for you.
