Appoint the Sorority Advisory Committee
The National Council will appoint members to serve on the Sorority Advisory Committee. There will be a call for interested members to serve on the committee this summer. The charge of the committee is to:
- Understand the experiences and needs of our Black Sisters which are not being met by current programming.
- Identify opportunities for growth in educating members on cultural bias, inclusion, and equity.
- Research experts in diversity, inclusion, and equity to engage with Alpha Sigma Tau.
Continue to optimize our partnerships with other non-profit organizations
The recent acts of violence and racism in our country has elevated the need to find opportunities to address issues of inequity and contribute to the progress of mankind. Through our Women’s Wellness Initiative, we will continue to seek opportunities to promote social and emotional wellness through service in our local communities.
Alpha Sigma Tau is setting the expectation that our members commit to education, awareness, and action. The National Organization applauds the many members who have set an example for us all through serving their community, supporting their Sisters, and vocalizing how Alpha Sigma Tau’s values are in opposition to racism.
