Diversity & Inclusion
Diversity and inclusion are of the utmost importance to our chapter. Delta Gamma has provided our members with a family. Something that holds this family together is the inclusion and celebration of individuals of different backgrounds and experiences. Our differences fuel our uniqueness as a chapter and are cherished by every member. Therefore, we continuously strive to promote diversity and inclusion efforts in our chapter operations.
Our efforts to promote diversity and inclusion within our chapter begin with the acknowledgement that our school, and moreover Greek life at our school, does not look like the world around us. For our chapter, diversity and inclusion means taking a hard look at ourselves, and acknowledging the ways in which we can be more inclusive. From having our Chapter Management Team (CMT) be safe-zoned trained to catering to the diverse interests and identities of chapter members, our goal is to make Delta Gamma a safe place and brave space for all. And in doing so, we hope to partner with our other Panhellenic organizations on campus in order to make changes not only at the organizational level, but on the campus level as well. We believe diversity is our strength. Our hope is that through the expansive interests of the Lafayette community and our members, we are able to do the most good.
