We are pleased to announce the creation of a new Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Scholarship Fund for individuals from underrepresented and marginalized groups. The fund aims to help remove financial barriers to participation in VLI’s leadership program. Strong and innovative leadership has never been more important for Vermont’s health and prosperity. Racial injustice, further complicated by the COVID-19 pandemic, affects every aspect of community life, reaching all sectors of Vermont. We recognize a need for complex systems change and are prepared to offer the necessary support and resources for a new class of visionary leaders through our premier civic leadership development program, the Vermont Leadership Institute.
