PRESENTATION: Somewhere I Belong: How to Recruit and Retain (Minority) Chapter Leaders
The biggest challenge facing the Greek system nationally is how to meet the pressing and urgent demands of diversity, equity, and inclusion. Chapters will think more critically not only about minority recruitment, but something that is even more neglected: inspiring our Greek brothers and sisters of color to become leaders. Drawing on the work of Dr. Hahrie Han, this session will break down the best research about how minority leadership makes organizations better and the difference between what Han calls transactional mobilizing and transformational organizing.
- Unpack the terminology and distinguish between equality, equity, diversity, and inclusion.
- Role-play and collaborate in teams to self-assess how we recruit and retain minority students.
- Design a leadership training agenda that incorporates chapter resources and member education to engineer more ways for minority students to become chapter leaders.
