I want more opportunities for people like me. More opportunities in leadership and in power so that people can find the Kionas of the world and pull them forward because people have done it for me.
Kiona takes pride in her work at the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum, giving voice to a once forgotten chapter of baseball and American history. Beyond her day-to-day, Kiona is dedicated to raising awareness of community resources available to minority businesses while promoting diversity and inclusion through strategic partnerships. She describes herself as a “Community Advocate, Social & Civic Innovator and Cause Driven Equity Leader” working to educate the next generation of leaders.
From elevating new regional clubs like the Black Dog Lovers’ Club of Kansas City to launching the “Up Next with Kiona Sinks” podcast, Kiona continually finds ways to advance the agenda for many diverse and marginalized groups in KC.
