Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Alpha Delta Pi is committed to creating a diverse and inclusive sisterhood that celebrates the identities and lived experiences of our members. We want to ensure we are truly embodying our motto, We Live For Each Other, in our words and actions.
On June 3, 2020, Grand Council shared the sorority’s 2020 Strategic Plan for the biennium which includes the prioritization of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI). Developed over the course of the last few months, this new plan identifies inclusivity as one of the core values of our organization.
As the first secret society for college women, Alpha Delta Pi has existed for over 169 years. While we have a long history and legacy, we recognize our responsibility to acknowledge our contributions to the racist and oppressive systems still in existence today. We are long overdue in taking responsibility to be better for all of our members, especially Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC), and other marginalized identity groups.
