Kansas City International Directory

Kansas City is home to countless organizations with a global focus or international operations, including the IRC, and we love how connecting organizations can result in valuable ideas and impact no organization would be able to produce alone. To help connect international organizations in the area, the IRC is proud to offer this growing directory.
