Equity, Inclusion and Diversity
Delta Tau Delta believes the most valuable part of Fraternity is having thousands of brothers by your side who are willing to move with courage to challenge the most troubling aspects of the world in which we live. Without question, the last year has been unlike any in our lifetimes.
Equity, inclusion and diversity (EID) are important for us to understand the member’s intersecting identities, honoring differences, and rooting out the effects of systemic inequity. Starting with a shared language is a first step in tackling these issues.
In partnership with Social Responsibility Speaks (SRS), Delta Tau Delta presents Equity, Inclusion and Diversity (EID) 101.
This program is designed for all Delta Tau Delta members, undergraduate and alumni members alike, to:
- Develop a fundamental understanding of EID
- Recognize the importance of intersectionality and its larger impacts on EID
- Identify EID areas that impact Delta Tau Delta
Mark your calendar for Monday, March 1 at 8 p.m. Eastern.
The Fraternity’s Arch Chapter is pleased to have Christina Parle join us to continue this important conversation to create a more diverse, equitable and inclusive brotherhood.
Whether this is your first conversation about equity, inclusion and diversity or you tend to be the one leading the conversation in your chapter or community, this program is an opportunity to learn, to reflect and to grow.
The session will ONLY be available to those who register.
Contact Alex Kennedy, director of undergraduate education with any questions.
