Diversity Awareness Partnership

DAP – Columbia

Diversity Awareness Partnership – Columbia, MO Branch

In the spring of 2015, DAP launched its first regional expansion with the opening of Diversity Awareness Partnership–Columbia to support local diversity and inclusion efforts. The expansion came at an important time for more concerted and sustained efforts for diversity and inclusion to improve communities across Missouri and throughout the country. After a thorough engagement and planning process with a community advisory committee representing area businesses and community leaders, DAP-Columbia was established and housed with Corporate Partner, Veterans United Home Loans.

DAP-Columbia offers the three pillars of impact to the community that have been the foundation of the work being done in the St. Louis community: Training and Education, Youth Programs, and Awareness Campaigns.
