This year, you can celebrate the Urban League of Kansas’ Equal Opportunity Dinner and Awards Program from the comfort of your home. Even though large gatherings are still not allowed, the Urban League will continue their tradition online on Thurs., Oct. 22, 7 - 8 p.m.

The Equal Opportunity Dinner is an annual fundraising event that celebrates trailblazing leaders who personify The Urban League of Kansas’ mission of “Empowering Communities and Changing Lives.” The virtual event will include sponsors hosting private dinner parties, a panel of professionals to discuss actionable change for an equitable workplace, and a live stream presentation of the awards.

This year’s honorees are:

• Wichita City Councilmember Brandon Johnson, Whitney M. Young Leadership Award

• Cox Communications, Corporate Diversity and Inclusion Award

• Create Campaign, Inc., Exceptional Nonprofit or Small Business Award

This year the live online event is free, but as a way to raise funds, the organization is selling $20 raffle tickets for a chance to win cash prizes. To reserve your free space at the event or to purchase your raffle ticket, go to and search ULK 2020 Equal Opportunity Dinner and Awards Tickets.
