SPOTLIGHT


DLI Fall Classes in the Upstate and the Lowcountry
 

We are excited to announce that forty-three leaders have been selected to participate in the Upstate Class XXIV; forty-two leaders have been selected to participate in the Lowcountry Class XII.

“In a time of considerable division both nationally and locally, it is increasingly important to work together to find ways to foster a thriving economy and break down barriers that hinder progress,” said Donald Gordon, executive director of the Riley Institute.

DLI class members are identified through a rigorous process including a nomination, application and interview. Individuals are selected to join the class based on their capacity to impact their organizations and communities. 

Over the course of five months, participants will learn about diversity and inclusion “blind spots” and how to suspend assumptions. Participants will also work in small, cross-sector groups to respond to real issues and opportunities in their communities through service projects.  The classes are facilitated by Juan Johnson, an independent consultant and former Coca-Cola vice president.
