This milestone celebration brings personal gratification for being a part of such a dynamic organization that is committed to community service. The vision and fortitude provided by the United Way of South Hampton Roads and the Council of Diversity and Inclusion (CDI) is one that over the past 20 years has become a cornerstone in providing leaders to serve our community.
Project Inclusion's inaugural graduating class completed its initial 6 weeks of training in April of 1997 and continues to recruit and train individuals from our community to become more effective when serving on the boards of non-profit organizations. Project Inclusion has graduated over 650 alumni who have gone on to serve on local non-profit agency Board of Directors. Virginia governors have appointed several Project Inclusion graduates to serve on state boards and commissions. Recognized in 2000 by United Way of America as one of three Best Practice Models for Diversity, CDI’s signature program, Project Inclusion continues to serve as an award-winning program and has distinguished itself as a leading model for effective leadership and improving non-profit board governance throughout Hampton Roads. We invite you to attend our 20th anniversary celebration Saturday March 4, 2017 at the Chesapeake Marriott Hotel and Conference Center. Your support is appreciated.
