2021 DEI Initiative Program Overview

Phase I of the PFA Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Initiative is ongoing! It is not too late to invite your membership to participate. Each of our PFA Fraternity Partners has a unique organizational code that allows us to track data specific to your organization. If you need your organizational code again, please reach out to [email protected].

Phase I: Exploring Unconscious/Implicit Bias with the Harvard Implicit Bias Assessments asks students to start with themselves on this journey to create more equitable able inclusive communities. To begin, we take you through a series of pages that provide information and context about unconscious bias including a video to explain the process, 2-3 unconscious or implicit bias assessments with the Harvard Implicit Bias Assessments, and a follow-up podcast and worksheet that helps you unpack your results and create action items moving forward.

DEI Initiative Phase II

Phase II of the PFA Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Initiative is known as Train the Trainer. In this training, you will be prepared to train your staff, volunteers, facilitators, or whoever else on how to train others on your DEI program. You will receive a digital packet of links and downloadable/editable resources as well as a training presentation to help with facilitating your training. While we have already conducted our live trainings, we have recorded the sessions for you to access if you were unable to attend the live training, or would like to review the training again. If you are interested in receiving these resources, please email [email protected].

DEI Initiative Phase III

The PFA Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Initiative Phase III is the Organization Diversity Audit. This was presented at the 2021 PFA Annual Conference, but it's not too late to take advantage of the tools and resources to complete your own Diversity Audit. We will have these resources available soon along with instructions to complete and follow up with your Diversity Audit!
