Why was it formed? +

The Kaleidoscope Leadership Institute was formed to give women of color an opportunity to examine themselves in the mirror and discover their wondrous reflection. Kaleidoscope is founded on the notion that it is essential to know, understand, honor, and leverage our strengths and uniqueness as part of the “kaleidoscope” of diversity needed for organizational and individual success. We believe that it is important for each member of ethnic and cultural groups to interact with and improve communication with each other in order to amplify the benefits of the diversity to an even greater degree. >> Testimonials
