In 2018 Stanford DCI launched dciX to provide impact opportunities for fellows and partners during their DCI year and DCI alum who expressed a desire to continue their involvement with the DCI program and Stanford University.  These opportunities harness the expertise and talent of the DCI Fellows to benefit Stanford and beyond; keep DCI Fellows connected with Stanford; and provide a forum for DCI Fellows to work together to create social and economic impact.

dciX provides a range of impact opportunities for Intergenerational Engagement; Special Interest Groups (SIGs) that provide deep dives into important issues; and special workshops and pilot programs.  These opportunities, including information on how to engage, are listed on DCIConnect.


Intergenerational Engagement initiatives

DCI Fellows have identified opportunities to mentor, coach and advise students on a range of topics including career choices; life-work balance; and start-up ideas. New connections are always welcome.

Centers, Institutes, and Programs that currently have Intergenerational Engagement opportunities with DCI include:

Special Interest Groups

SIGs often take deep dives into topics and reach out to students from the various schools across the University to participate.  Each SIG is aligned with a Stanford Center or Institute to help identify projects and initiatives to which DCI Fellows could contribute and add value.  Current and emerging SIGs are led by a DCI Fellow or alum and address a range of topics including:

  • DCI on Boards
  • DCI Speaks
  • DCI Writes
  • Energy and Sustainability
  • Impact Investing
  • Longevity Innovations
  • Salon Speaker Series

Each year new SIGs and Intergenerational Engagement opportunities are formed based on the interests of the new cohort of DCI Fellows. dciX accelerates the development of new initiatives and provides support for them.  dciX also offers special workshops and pilot programs in response to fellows’ interests.  These include:

  • Mini Lean Workshop
  • Workshops on developing a Board Profile
  • Hacking for Longevity workshops

If you are interested in starting a new dciX Intergenerational Engagement initiative or Special Interest Group, please reach out to Brittany Carlson or Susan Golden for further information.
