DHIFI is proud to collaborate with prominent institutions on a variety of partnership initiatives:
Youth Development/Education: Scholastic, Inc. is DHIFI’s closest education partner, working with us to produce the Kids Flaunt program available to fourth grade classrooms nationwide. DHIFI also previously cooperated with Scholastic to create the “Flaunt It” Art and Writing Award for teen creative arts projects [link?]
Nonprofit Cooperation: Runway of Dreams (RoD), a nonprofit organization encouraging inclusion in the fashion world, works with DHIFI on the publication of “RoD Flaunts.” Through this partnership, models with a range of physical differences share their stories, with a focus on the opportunities created by adaptable clothing and related programs. Other past nonprofit partners include Family Promise and 826Valencia.
Higher Education: Cornell University is our primary “Alumni Flaunt” partner, creating platforms with DHIFI to highlight the experiences of their Diversity Alumni Program participants. The “Alumni Flaunt” program launched in 2017 and DHIFI is actively reaching out to additional universities.
Corporate Diversity: DHIFI is proud to work with multiple corporations to enhance their human-resource based Diversity and Inclusion initiatives, especially through their Employee Resource Groups. Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) Capital Markets and Morgan Stanley are two of DHIFI’s most active corporate partners, with others currently in development.
Partnerships with DHIFI inspire key stakeholders to strengthen relationships, build a culture of inclusion, and build their specific communities by hearing stories of role models in celebrating difference – and by developing unique platforms for their members and employees to tell their own stories.
