SUSAN M. GADDY SELECTED FOR RILEY INSTITUTE AT FURMAN DIVERSITY LEADERS INITIATIVE’S 11th LOWCOUNTRY CLASS
Susan M. Gaddy of The Gaddy Law Firm, LLC has been selected as an “emerged leader” to participate in the 11th Lowcountry class of the Riley Institute at Furman’s Diversity Leaders Initiative (DLI).
“We are excited to welcome these accomplished people into DLI. The relationships they will form and tools they will gain over the course of the DLI program will support their progress as passionate and influential leaders in the state,” said Dr. Don Gordon, executive director of the Riley Institute.
Gaddy said, “They received over 700 nominations for 45 spots in this year’s class. I’m honored to be chosen and look forward to learning more on solving issues facing South Carolina!”
Ms. Gaddy, a long-time resident of Daniel Island, owns The Gaddy Law Firm, LLC in Mt. Pleasant. Her law firm has assisted many Daniel Island residents with legal issues such as the purchase and sale of small businesses, civil mediation, and representing customers against banks – especially involving real estate and mortgages.
“DLI is unique among South Carolina’s leadership programs. In addition to the opportunity to develop new relationships and take part in positive action in their communities, participants gain deep knowledge of how to effectively manage and lead increasingly diverse workers, clients and constituents,” said Juan Johnson, facilitator of the program, retired from Coca Cola in Atlanta. As part of the program, leaders also work in cross-sector groups to respond to real issues and opportunities in their communities through capstone service projects.
Participants reflecting South Carolina’s demographics and representing the corporate, nonprofit, education, faith-based and government sectors are chosen by nomination and application. “The frames of reference and skills that DLI graduates share provide a remarkable platform for working together to help South Carolina compete in the 21st century,” Gordon said.
