As the largest city in Kansas, Wichita provides young professionals with a wide variety of opportunities to enjoy life inside and outside the office. Through our events and programs, YPW connects you to many of the people and places that make Wichita a great place to call home. In between events, you may want to explore some of those on your own or with new friends.
