This spring, BNTD partner Margaret “Marti” Miles Bluestein will participate in the Diversity Leaders Initiative, a program of the Riley Institute at Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina.
A founding partner of Bluestein, Nichols, Thompson & Delgado, LLC, Bluestein will be one of 44 community leaders participating in the program’s Midlands class.
The DLI program trains participants to understand their diversity and inclusion “blind spots” and how to suspend assumptions. They come away with focused decision-making skills and deep knowledge of how to effectively manage and lead increasingly diverse workers, clients and constituents.
Riley Fellows meet for multiple classes over five months in a format driven by timely, relevant case studies and other experiential learning tools designed to maximize interactions and productive relationships among program participants. They also work in cross-sector teams to respond to real issues and opportunities in their respective communities through Capstone Service projects.

Bluestein practices in the areas of workers’ compensation and mediation, among others. She has been recognized the last three years as one of the Best Lawyers in America, and has received numerous other recognitions. She serves as board chair of the South Carolina Appleseed Legal Justice Center.
Bluestein is a graduate of Furman University, with a bachelor’s degree in political science. She received her juris doctor degree from the University of South Carolina Law School.
