Diversity Strategies

The most successful enterprises — business, government, nonprofit, education, and community — are those whose leaders understand how to leverage the talent and creativity of diverse people to optimize performance and outcomes. Similarly, South Carolina’s civic and cultural life is most vital when the unique contributions of our diverse peoples are surfaced, celebrated, and amplified.

The Riley Institute’s Center for Diversity Strategies recognizes excellence in diversity leadership and equips leaders and community stakeholders with the tools needed to harness the power of diversity in their organizations and communities, drive positive change, and enhance the economic and civic vitality of South Carolina.
