DIVERSITY, EQUITY, & INCLUSION

As PHA DEI directors, not being performative in DEI efforts means an ongoing commitment to recognize and reconcile harmful impacts and practices, to change the status quo. A non-negotiable value of the College Panhellenic Association at The Ohio State University is inclusivity and social justice. Examining the history of fraternities and sororities to uncover exclusion and racial trauma while acknowledging current oppression must remain core to our efforts. We must call on fraternity and sorority members to engage in individual and systemic work to address oppression and examine social justice efforts in the fraternity and sorority context and beyond. In order to further our community towards these efforts, we have formed a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee. It is important for all to fill in gaps of education and learning, and to look inside first to understand one's own biases and privilege before using tools for social change. We are trying to be an active part of progress and not an active part of the problem. View the members and their goals below.

If you have questions for the committee, please contact the VP of Outreach and Inclusion at vpoi.osupha@gmail.com or the Directors of Outreach and Inclusion at oi.osupha@gmail.com.
