Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

To achieve the vision of our sisterhood – to be a recognized premier organization for women, to provide lifelong enrichment and to contribute to the betterment of society – the Fraternity must focus on diversity, equity and inclusion. Already a strategic focus, in early June 2020 the Fraternity elevated the priority of ensuring a more diverse, equitable and inclusive sisterhood.


As true friends, we honor the uniqueness of each sister. We empower one another, through meaningful relationships grounded in empathy. We promise an inclusive sisterhood, where every member feels welcome, is supported, and knows she belongs.

As the first fraternity for women, we own our role and responsibility in the fraternal movement. We recognize our power and privilege as college-educated women, to work for an equitable society. We commit to develop the servant leaders our diverse world needs.
