KON Chapter Activity to address:
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI)

Critical Issue: Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is a timely issue. Diversity includes presence of differences, equity is promoting justice, impartiality, and fairness, and inclusion is an outcome to ensure those that are diverse feel or are welcomed. https://dei.extension.org/

Possible Chapter Service Activities

  1. Evaluate the DEI of your chapter members. Are you truly open to all people? If (outside of eligibility requirements) your recruitment or invitation process has excluded anyone (intentionally or unintentionally) can you modify your practices to include them?
  2. Host or participate in a Unity Walk/March in your community. Leading by example for your community can be a great way to advocate for diversity, equity, and inclusion.
  3. Promote ice breakers in different group settings in your workplace/campus. Providing a safe environment that ALL students or members feel comfortable is crucial for both DEI and the stability of the group as well.
  4. Explore global cultures through food to educate your chapter while having fun!
  5. Host a “name story” session where your members explore their names, the story behind their given names, and what that means for their heritage and roots.
  6. Volunteer at daycares or visit schools to read books to children that portray diverse and inclusive characters as positive role models.
  7. Check out your own unconscious biases at implicit.harvard.edu/implicit/takeatest.html Project Implicit and asses your own preferences on race, sexuality, age, disability, or other topics. Your data also helps scientists!
  8. Partner with your campus multicultural office to attend or volunteer at any events they may be hosting.
