As the events of the past few weeks have unfolded, Tri Delta’s Executive Board has taken the time to listen and learn about the complex issues surrounding racism – in society at large, in higher education and within our own organization.
This work has resulted in the development of a comprehensive action plan designed to address systematic racism. The plan is called LEADDD Now and is built on three pillars:
BRAVE – Activities designed to identify and dismantle systemic racism
BOLD – Programs and efforts to promote education, understanding and healing among our sisters
KIND – Tools and resources to equip our members in the fight for equality and justice
This plan, as it's published, is a working document. It will be further informed by an organization-wide audit, anchored in education and training and supported by a national volunteer structure.
In order to demonstrate our commitment to this work, the 2018-20 Executive Board and slated 2020-22 Executive Board Director Susan Woda will introduce the LEADDD Now Business Resolution at Convention 2020 on July 11.
