Make RI Stronger
In March 2014, Leadership Rhode Island (LRI), in partnership with Gallup, launched ‘Make RI Stronger’, a multi-year initiative to dramatically improve Rhode Island – its residents, its communities, and its organizations – through strengths-based training and education, which has been shown to have profound positive impacts on people in their personal and professional lives. This initiative emerged in response to a 2013 Gallup report that indicated RI had the highest percentage of ‘actively disengaged’ workers in the entire country.
