• DSIL Alumni Community

    DSIL loudly celebrates the diverse groups of individuals and organizations that come together to form this great community!

     

    The common bond between this diverse group is the guiding belief that self-improvement, through unique experiences, is a way to ignite innovation in their lives and organizations. Alumni have stayed in contact beyond the course to help implement their learnings in the real world, create companies, or travel together.
