Graduates of the Diversity Leaders Initiative program become Riley Fellows, a distinguished, powerful network of statewide leaders who bring different perspectives but are united in their commitment to driving progress in South Carolina.

Through its OneSouthCarolina initiative, the Riley Institute is committed to fostering long-term connections and continued learning opportunities for Riley Fellows.

Events throughout the year allow Fellows to remain engaged with the Riley Institute and with each other. Special conferences and webinars provide learning experiences focused on emerging issues of particular interest to DLI graduates.

With every new DLI class, Fellows are invited to a welcoming reception and to graduation. In many cases, the Riley Institute is able to offer Fellows special access to visiting speakers and preferred seating at the events carried out by its Center for Critical Issues. Occasionally, Fellows are called together for purely social reasons!

The professional accomplishments of Riley Fellows are featured through “Riley Fellows in the News” email bulletins, social media features, and digital series like Frontlines Fellows, which highlights their exemplary leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic.
