Dr. Jacqueline Inabinette graduates from The Riley Institute’s Diversity Leaders Initiative at Furman University 


Manning, SC – June 10, 2024 – Dr. Jacqueline Inabinette has graduated from the Diversity Leaders Initiative’s (DLI) 16 th Midlands class. DLI is hosted by Furman University and has been promoting the power of diversity for over 20 years to help teams, organizations, and communities in South Carolina thrive. This five-month curriculum explored a wide array of topics from bias and discrimination to the role of context, and it openly engaged with sensitive issues related to diversity and inclusion. It concluded with a community action project aimed at identifying and addressing a concern in the Upstate and implementing an enduring solution. Dr. Jacqueline Inabinette’s graduation marks her joining of a community of over 2,800 fellows statewide. We are eager to see all that Dr. Jacqueline Inabinette brings to Clarendon County School District from this important experience. Dr. Inabinette reflects on her DLI experience.
