Alpha Epsilon Phi Sorority, Sigma Alpha Mu Fraternity, Sigma Delta Tau Sorority and Zeta Beta Tau Fraternity are pleased to host the sixth annual Summit Against Hate. The Summit Against Hate was a recipient of the 2017 and 2021 North American Interfraternity Conference’s Laurel Wreath Award.
For Student Leaders and Advisors
On Wednesday, November 2, 2022 from 7-9 p.m. ET, we will be hosting a virtual program specifically intended for chapter officers and committee members who oversee Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging programming and education within your chapters. Chapter advisors are invited to attend as well.
IMPORTANT: Chapters must have at least one representative attend this program in order to meet expectations as outlined in the Standards for Chapter Achievement.
During this virtual program, participants will learn best practices and innovative approaches to thoughtfulness, empathy, and care for organizational and transformational change. Through the program’s focus on building cultural humility and establishing an inclusive team dynamic, participants will:
- Think critically about their own assumptions, beliefs, biases, and values in order to address historic and current inequalities
- Learn how to create a shared understanding of why inclusivity is important for their chapter
- Identify implicit associations and inclusive behaviors
- Gain knowledge for building an intentional chapter by understanding the stages of group development
- Learn how to model open communication and delegate work equitably
- Revamp their own leadership and communication practices to ensure that their chapters continue to thrive while prioritizing diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging.
This program will be facilitated by Stephanie Paredes, a member of Lambda Pi Chi Sorority, Inc. and facilitator for Beyond Boundaries Consulting, a minority and women-owned consulting business focused on assisting companies, community, and government organizations and educational institutions develop, implement, assess and enhance their business practices through transformational change.
Students and advisors are encouraged to register by October 24, 2022. If you have any questions or need assistance registering, please contact Rachel Shaffer, Membership Experience Specialist, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For Fraternity/Sorority Professionals
This year, we will be hosting a deep dive session during the AFA Annual Meeting to provide an opportunity for participation and dialogue among fraternity/sorority professionals as it relates to anti-Semitism and other forms of hate on college campuses.
During this program, attendees will hear from a child of a Holocaust survivor and trained facilitators in the Jewish and DEI Spaces. This will be an opportunity to create an action plan for engaging in advocacy, cultivating partnerships, and supporting your students who are experiencing antisemitism and other forms of hate on college campuses. We invite all campus-based professional and headquarters fraternity and sorority professionals to join us on Friday, December 2nd, from 10:15 a.m. – 11:45 a.m. ET.
