Diversity Awareness Partnership (DAP) offers several programs aimed at increasing diversity and inclusion in St. Louis.
The DAP Connect Program has one purpose – to help you diversify your social and professional networks. Too often we build personal and working relationships with others “like us”. DAP Connect helps you leave your comfort zone to meet individuals who are different from you, whether by race or ethnicity, age, religion, ability, sexual orientation or gender identity. Through DAP Connect, you will build relationships with leaders throughout the St. Louis region and gain a stronger appreciation for diversity.
We offer diversity training designed to increase employee understanding of diversity and provide next – steps for fostering an inclusive workplace. Our 90-minute training can be delivered as presentations, workshops, roundtables or lunch & learns.
This externship program has been developed to expose, empower, and encourage students of color to pursue STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) and other careers.
Established in 2002, the “Give Respect, Get Respect Youth Program”, a collaborative initiative between the Diversity Awareness Partnership and Edward Jones, brings 25 schools across the St. Louis metro area together with Edward Jones associates to explore race, religion, disability, and sexual orientation and gender identity.
