While our sisters are individually passionate about many different avenues of service, each of us have a personal connection and journey to the sororities key initiatives below.
Providing an Everlasting Sisterhood®
Our sisterhood is a close-knit group of women from different cultures aiming towards creating an organization that provides the social and emotional support needed to thrive throughout all the stages of a woman's life. Through this shared sisterhood, we provide our communities a forum, that they might not have access to otherwise, to bridge the gap between individuals who may have differing views and continue to strip away stereotypes against women. The bonds between our sisters are everlasting, and we place value in curating a safe place for women to grow into the best versions of themselves.
Advocating for Asian Awareness
We strive to advocate for not only ourselves but also the greater Asian community. We seek to provide a united voice to positive change on issues, including immigrant rights, Asian violence prevention and awareness, APIA-focused voting rights, and language access. We are focused on engaging young women interested in deepening their understanding of Asian community issues, sharing Asian culture, and building trust between diverse groups of people that inspires local action. Chapters across the nation host events such as forums, presentations, and workshops to expose students and the surrounding communities to the value of civic engagement and the need for community leadership within the underrepresented Asian community. We are a member of the National Asian Pacific Islander Desi American Panhellenic Association (NAPA).
Empowering Dedicated Female Leaders®
Women bring a unique value and perspective to each opportunity presented. Our sorority is designed to equip women who are already proven leaders with the knowledge and skills needed to have greater impact and broader influence within our organization, their campus, the workforce, and life. We support our sisters to gain essential skills and experiences that enhance their ability to achieve their highest potential through education, mentoring, and networking. They’ll learn to harness their existing strengths, build new competencies, and develop an entrepreneurial mindset that will ultimately provide them with a renewed leadership identity. In our communities, we take an active role in promoting discussions about women's rights, unconscious bias, and the value of men allies through the blend of lectures, guest speakers, self-assessments, and networking.
Promoting Osteoporosis Awareness
With a long tradition of contributing to philanthropic service efforts, we provide a platform for sisters to contribute to society through educational awareness programs, community service projects, and fundraising activities. Our national philanthropic partnership is with American Bone Health to raise awareness for osteoporosis, a disease that disproportionately affects people of Asian descent. In addition, sisters are encouraged to participate in volunteering activities, such as helping out at soup kitchens, community cleanups, free tutoring, and other events directed towards the betterment of their local and regional communities. By giving their personal time and talents back to the community, our members are rewarded through a sense of purpose and perspective, and it reinforces a lifelong commitment to helping others.
National Philanthopy Partner: American Bone Health (ABH)
We are proud to partner with American Bone Health for our National Philanthropy - Osteoporosis Awareness. Our collaboration with American Bone Health will raise much-needed funds, engage new audiences, provide opportunities to support American Bone Health in the long term, and help alert others about risk factors and preventative measures. We take our philanthropic responsibility seriously. Rather than simply writing a check, we want to build an ongoing partnership that will continue to deliver tangible benefits to communities across the nation. Our sisters are trained peer educators conducting a number of outreach programs from screenings to workshops for local communities to advocate for living a healthy lifestyle, staying active, and eating more foods with calcium and vitamin D. By doing these preventative measures, individuals may reduce the chance of developing osteoporosis as they grow older - a common disease women, particularly Asian women, have higher risks of developing.
