Aligned is a nonprofit, nonpartisan coalition of BUSINESS LEADERS committed to improving education in Kansas and Missouri.
We are business leaders who have joined forces to to ensure that education systems work better and smarter for all the people of Kansas & Missouri.
We apply our unique business expertise, leadership skills, and influence to continuously improve Kansas and Missouri’s schools.
We are the only organization in Kansas and Missouri to bring education, business, and government leaders together. When schools improve and the government streamlines, business strengthens.
We welcome trailblazers, influencers, and decision makers committed to continuous improvement of our states’ education systems. We’re relentless in this effort. Join us and
we will translate your passion into impact.
Aligned was founded on the premise that the business community has the obligation,
opportunity and capacity to increase the college and workforce readiness of all students
through an ambitious, aggressive and comprehensive transformation agenda.
Help strengthen advocacy and outreach efforts with a contribution to Aligned. Your financial support bolsters the business voice and allows us to provide workforce insight into PK-12 education policymaking.
Every. Student. Prepared.
