DLI's New Fall Programming


Due to COVID-19, the Riley Institute has made several changes to its diversity programming. Out of respect for the safety of participants and staff, all classes and events are taking place virtually for the time being.

Instead of two regional DLI classes for the fall term, the virtual format allows the selection of a statewide class that will enable leaders to expand their networks across the state. Our first-ever statewide cohort kicked off its classes on October 1. Forty-six participants from across the state are engaging in complex and multi-layered discussions around the best ways to achieve mission-driven goals and positive change. They will graduate on December 17.

In response to current call for racial justice, the Riley Institute’s DLI graduate education series launched a new virtual program, “Leading in the New Reality: An Exploration of the Impact of Systemic Racism and the New Expectations of Organizations, Institutions and Leaders.” Three cohorts have been participating in the program, exploring sensitive topics and learning from one another as they lead their organizations and communities in difficult times.
