** CANCELED ** MARCH – Lift and Rise Up!

Dear DLA workshop Participant,

The Diversity Leadership Alliance team has made the decision to cancel our March 2020 program celebrating Women’s History Month due to our concerns about the COVID-19 coronavirus. We take the current circumstances seriously and are acting in the interest of everyone’s well-being.  Our concern is the health and safety of our communities and we want to do our part to ensure that everyone remains healthy during these uncertain times.

Please continue to visit this website for additional information and DLA programming updates in reference to other scheduled workshops and events throughout the year.

Please take care of yourselves and each other.
– Diversity Leadership Alliance Team.

In Celebration of Women’s History Month


DLA invites you to join us


Creating Stories of Equity


PRESENTER: Felicia Davis

The month of March celebrates the contributions women have made throughout history in science, politics, law, sports, the arts, entertainment, and many other fields. While figures such Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Harriet Tubman, Amelia Earhart, Eleanor Roosevelt, Rosie the Riveter, Amy Tan, Maya Angelou, and Katherine Johnson are often associated with Women’s History Month, there are countless extraordinary women who have earned their place at the table with simple purpose every day of their lives. They have yet to tell their stories.

This highly interactive program will explore yesterday, today and tomorrow, creating a mind map of women who have changed the world.  We will look at our culture’s inner programming about gender and bias; assess what holds anyone back from reaching their goals, and exploring community and workplace values for equity and belonging. Finally, we will learn how to craft one powerful story about a woman who made a difference in our own lives.



  • Explore women’s historical perspective.
  • Learn what holds you back and propels you forward.
  • Clearly identify your ONE individual superpower.
  • Craft a powerful story about a remarkable woman in your life.
