Closure of Diverse Leadership Inc.

Dear DLI Members,

On Wednesday 22 May 2019, a Special Resolution was passed – with no objections – by the committee for Diverse Leadership Incorporation to apply for Voluntary Cancellation.

DLI has now been running for almost five years, and the committee feel that the group has run its course.

We thank you for your support.

Kind regards,

Erin Marshall
(Chairperson)
Diverse Leadership Inc.

History of Diverse Leadership Inc

Based on positive experiences with the “Leaders for Tomorrow” (LFT) program, interest was expressed by the LFT grads and supporters to expand on what they had achieved and create an organisation that would foster leadership Aspirations. And so, diverse Leadership Inc was established and incorporated in August of 2014.
