Dionna Dorsey

Co-founder & CEO


Dionna’s love for creating began as a young child with a coloring book and has since grown into an entrepreneurial passion. She uses culture, empathy, simplicity, and inspiring design to support clients in their brand development. Her compassionate nature allows her to empathize with her clients–as well as their audiences–and the result has been her unique ability to create, develop, and nurture ‘the’ message to best align purpose and passion for brands.

Dionna is the co-founder and CEO of The Creative Ladder, a non-profit connecting, inspiring and elevating a new generation of creative industry leaders. Creative Ladder helps students from all backgrounds learn about creative careers and offers student outreach, virtual leadership trainings, seminars and workshops and consulting and custom events for those beginning their journeys.

She's also the founder of DISTRICT of CLOTHING, a lifestyle brand encouraging progression, inspiring action and supporting self-love. With apparel and accessory items for the sideline rejectors who awake with passion for progress and desire to make their dreams reality, District of Clothing is worn by the change makers making change happen.

Dionna attended Villanova University in Villanova, Pennsylvania and Istituto Marangoni in Milan, Italy, and currently resides in Potomac, Maryland with her husband, bonus children, and Bichon, Coco Laroux.
