Liz Horton, Senior Vice President at the Greenville Chamber, has graduated from Riley Institute at Furman’s Diversity Leaders Initiative. Upon graduating, Liz has earned the designation Riley Fellow.
Liz was selected to participate in the prestigious program after a rigorous process including nominations from existing Riley Fellows, application and interview. Individuals are selected to join the class based on their capacity to impact their organizations and communities.
Over the past six months, participants examined issues related to diversity and inclusion, explored blind spots and discussed how to suspend assumptions. Liz also worked with other class members on a Capstone project to respond to real issues in the community.
“We now have more than 2000 Riley Fellows statewide. Each new class further extends the reach and impact of leaders willing to work together to make South Carolina a better place to live and work for all its residents,” says Dr. Donald Gordon, executive director of the Riley Institute.
