Sigma Delta Tau has assembled a selection of programming ideas to support chapters.
Additional programs will be added as they become available.
All nationally-facilitated programs can be requested using the form below. It’s important to note that each of these programs will be customized to fit your chapter’s needs, and therefore will take a couple of weeks to prepare for your chapter. Please allow one week for someone to follow up on the request.
InveSDT in Yourself: Financial Literacy
Sigma Delta Tau’s InveSDT in Yourself: Financial Literacy workshop provides collegians training that helps promote financial independence. This 90-minute program teaches participants how to focus on their own financial fitness, including managing income sources, establishing a budget and building credit. Facilitated by SDT alumnae who have successfully transitioned from college life to careers and beyond, this session addresses what can be intimidating topics, in an easy-to-understand format that includes examples and practice activities.
Recruitment Bias Training
As part of the work we are doing in the area of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, we have developed this Recruitment Bias Training. This session was crafted to help us reflect on our own personal biases and how As organizations who stands for friendship, belonging, and inclusion, sororities owe it to our members, potential new members, and community to check our biases and generate accessible and welcoming environments. If we can be honest with ourselves, we don’t always get it right. This recruitment bias training is an honest conversation about how bias has been and likely still is a huge problem in sorority life, and how we can work consistently, arduously, and courageously to locate and change bias in our recruitment practices.
Safe Smart Dating
Sigma Delta Tau’s Safe Smart Dating program was developed by Jewish Women International (JWI) and co-sponsored with Zeta Beta Tau (ZBT) as an interactive educational program designed to explore gender norms, define healthy relationships and train participants on how to be active bystanders. It is the first national program for Greek collegiate communities to explore dating abuse and sexual assault. It is available as an in-person or virtual program.
Pre-Recorded Programs for Chapters
The Pre-Recorded Programs enable chapters to self-facilitate programming in a variety of areas. These recordings feature experts in their fields and offer a flexible, on-demand option for chapters to implement program development for members.
Graduate School & Career Planning
These programs are designed to help collegians sharpen their skills for the graduate school, internship, or career search process. They cover a variety of topics including graduate school application and preparation processes, networking, interviewing tips, and more.
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
As an organization founded by Jewish women in 1917, Sigma Delta Tau has been intimately familiar with discrimination and hate. We have been committed to and comfortable with speaking out against anti-Semitism as it was the clearest thing for us to stand against. However, recent deaths of Black Americans has further illuminated the hundreds of years of hate, injustice, and oppression done unto Black communities and communities of color; we can no longer conscionably rest on the privilege of being against only one form of hate. We acknowledge this and commit to fighting hate in all its forms, and educating all of our active members on how to be truly welcoming of all potential members, regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexuality, gender identity or religion.
What Is Nude: Exploring Bias in the Panhellenic Sorority Experience
This session explores various forms of bias related to sexuality, race, national origin, gender expression and socio-economic status in the Panhellenic sorority experience. Identifying policies, procedures, and practices that contribute to these various forms of bias—which will offer participants take-away ideas they can put into practice when working with Panhellenic sorority members—are also discussed.
