Advance Kansas begins with a three-hour orientation session, followed by four full-day workshops spread over a four-month period. Workshops include classroom discussions, lectures, scenario analysis and other experiential learning tools that are designed to maximize interactions between participants and facilitate the development of productive relationships. Between workshop days, participants are encouraged to meet in teams to complete assignments and develop a community action project. The program culminates with each team's plenary presentation of their community action project.
Advance Kansas sessions are facilitated by Juan Johnson, President of Juan Johnson Consulting, LLC. Juan has been in this role since July 2006, after concluding an extraordinary 21 year career with the Coca-Cola Company where he served as the company's first ever Vice President for Diversity Strategy. Through Juan's work in diversity leadership and community building he has facilitated sessions with hundreds of leaders across a multitude of industries, in the process building a wealth of knowledge which he applies in his consulting and facilitation practice. Juan holds an MBA from Atlanta University and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Accounting from Southern University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
