Furman UniversityPoised to join more than 1,700 Riley Fellows from across the state, 43 leaders from the Upstate and surrounding areas have been selected to participate in the Riley Institute at Furman’s Diversity Leaders Initiative (DLI).“We are excited to welcome these accomplished people into DLI. The relationships they will form and tools they will gain over the course of the DLI program will support their progress as passionate and influential leaders in the state,” says Dr. Don Gordon, Executive Director of the Riley Institute.Class members meet over the course of five months in a format driven by timely, relevant case studies and other experiential learning tools designed to maximize interactions and productive relationships among program participants.DLI is facilitated by Juan Johnson, an independent consultant and former Coca-Cola Vice President. “DLI is unique among South Carolina’s leadership programs. In addition to the opportunity to develop new relationships and take part in positive action in their communities, participants gain deep knowledge of how to effectively manage and lead increasingly diverse workers, clients and constituents,” says Johnson.As part of the program, leaders also work in cross-sector groups to respond to real issues and opportunities in their communities through capstone service projects.Participants, who reflect South Carolina’s demographics and who represent the corporate, nonprofit, education, faith-based and government sectors, are chosen by nomination and application.“It is increasingly evident that our state benefits from having a unified body of leaders committed to working to break down barriers that hinder progress as we move toward a thriving economy and brighter future for all South Carolinians,” Gordon says.The Riley Fellows for DLI Upstate Class 22 are:Deborah AllenAssociate Director for Diversity Programs and Student ActivitiesFurman UniversityGreenvilleSelynto AndersonManager of Community Prevention & Wellness ServicesSelf Regional HealthcareWellness WorksGreenvilleBruce BarkleyNews DirectorWYFF 4GreenvilleKevin BryantResident Managing DirectorAon Risk SolutionsGreenvilleLaura Caligan-GilliamChief Strategy OfficerThe Graham FoundationGreenvilleStarla Collins-RossSchool Development CoachNew Tech NetworkNapa, Calif.Cara CorneliusVice President of Customer ServiceMichelin North AmericaGreenvilleBrad CuttinoRecreation AdministratorCity of GreenvilleGreenvilleRalph DimennaCOO Michelin Americas Truck TiresMichelin North AmericaGreenvilleJason ElliottAttorneyJason Elliott, Attorney at Law, LLCGreenvilleCorey EppsSection ManagerBMWGreerStephanie EstradaVice President of FinanceGoodwill Industries of Upstate/Midlands SCGreenvilleJanet Foster-WhitleyDirector of Sales & Operations & AdministrationMichelin North AmericaGreenvilleAlex GarveySenior Vice President of MissionBon Secours St. FrancisGreenvilleDanielle GibbsRegional DirectorOffice of U.S. Senator Tim ScottGreenvilleCheryl GrantDirector and Staff CounselSYNNEX CorporationGreenvilleGerald HuntCaptainGreenville Police DepartmentGreenvilleChris KerscherMarket Development ManagerA.
