DIVERSITY FELLOWSHIP

Your Training + DCI Support

Now more than ever, organizations are realizing that having a 4-year degree is not the best indicator of performance. Highly skilled candidates come from diverse backgrounds and educational journeys and are more likely to positively impact business through on-the-job training and experience vs. institutional education. 

Innovative companies are creating their own talent pipeline through low-risk Fellowship programs that enable early-career talent to rapidly develop with support every step of the way.

DCI Diversity Fellowship Benefits:

  • No cost or obligation to participate
  • Access to diverse talent pool
  • Creates a scalable solution to increase diversity
  • Access to Dept of Labor apprenticeship grant funding
  • Candidates receive 1-on-1 coaching to increase performance
