D Academy

In 2012, D Magazine Partners established a civic leadership training program for the local creative class, including entrepreneurs, educators, journalists, artists, marketers, and tech professionals. Led by Krista Nightengale, the program is modeled on the Dallas Chamber of Commerce’s esteemed Leadership Dallas approach with monthly immersions in different aspects of city business, including the justice system, education, local government, poverty, healthcare, urban and sustainable development, and how to brand the city.

Twenty-four fellows (nine from within D Magazine Partners and 15 from the community) were accepted into the 2014-2015 class, and their group project is Big D Reads.
