Reflections from our 2021 graduates

“The DIH GLA has gifted me with priceless relationships and connections to several dynamic, black women in leadership from around the globe and an opportunity for personal growth. I am forever grateful for the family I have gained through this program and for the safe space provided for me to learn, share and develop as a black woman in leadership.”

I am grateful for the experience with the class. I know that our paths will cross again in global spaces. I value everything that I am taking from this course.”
