ZTA’s Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI)

Zeta Tau Alpha is committed to building a nobler womanhood in the world by creating a more diverse, equitable and inclusive sisterhood. To this end, ZTA has established a DEI Strategic Plan, an Inclusion Committee, a growing list of DEI resources and an avenue for direct feedback.

ZTA’s Inclusion Philosophy is rooted in both the Key Value of Seeking Understanding that We Might Gain True Wisdom and Belonging, one of the Five Areas of Sisterhood. These two principles serve as the main components of ZTA’s diversity, equity and inclusion approach. The audiences or parts of the ZTA experience that relate to each component appear underneath those headers.

Zeta Tau Alpha is a sisterhood made of many individual women, and it celebrates the uniqueness each sister brings. We respect and support each member’s personal identity, and we seek to provide an accepting environment within every chapter. We believe in creating a space of belonging for every member. We expect everyone to treat their sisters with “Love, ‘the greatest of all things.’”

ZTA has an Inclusion Committee that continues to integrate diversity and inclusion conversations throughout the membership experience. ZTA believes topics related to diversity and inclusion do not happen in a bubble or a one-time program. ZTA is committed to this being an ongoing conversation through one of ZTA’s Nine Key Values focusing on openness to diversity and challenge, called Seeking Understanding that We Might Gain True Wisdom, in ZTA’s Creed.

Zeta Tau Alpha is an international women’s social fraternity that does not discriminate based on race, creed, ethnicity, religion, national origin, sexual orientation or disability. Zeta Tau Alpha membership is open to individuals who consistently live and self-identify as women.

ZTA is a private sisterhood organization operating through Nine Key Values, whose object is “to intensify friendship, to promote happiness among its members, and in every way to create such sentiments, perform such deeds and to mould such opinions as will be conducive to the building up of a nobler and purer womanhood in the world.”
