FOCUS St. Louis is pleased to announce the newest class of graduates from the Diversity Leadership Fellowship (DLF) program. Launched in 2014, DLF is offered each spring to provide a deep-dive into issues of inclusion, diversity and equity. The goal of the DLF program is to develop a community of leaders who guide their organizations and community in creating a truly inclusive and prosperous community to live, learn, work and play.


During the program, the 12 participants gained a deeper understanding of unconscious bias, structural and systemic racism, and the history and privilege of race and place. In addition, the class explored different facets of diversity and inclusion, including age, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion and disability.


Upon completion, DLF graduates join a network of more than 8,000 FOCUS alumni from across the public, private and nonprofit sectors.
