Diversity Awareness Partnership

DAP Connect


What is DAP Connect?


The DAP Connect Program will 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.

DAP Connect Members grow and diversify their professional and social networks while helping DAP reach more people and work toward more inclusive communities. Connect Members support our diversity and inclusion training sessions, our youth diversity programs, and our resources and publications in the St. Louis and Columbia regions.

Tina Mahtani, Director of Operations.
