History and Values

Beta Gamma's DEI Mission Statement

The Beta Gamma Chapter of Alpha Kappa Psi aspires to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in all aspects of our organization. Our chapter consists of individuals from varying backgrounds who bring diverse perspectives from many sources including gender, race, age, national origin, sexual orientation, cultural education, and professional and life experiences. We firmly believe that a diverse, equitable, and inclusive organization allows us to better uphold our core values: brotherhood, knowledge, integrity, service, and unity. We expect all of our chapter members to promote these values and our commitment to fostering an environment where inclusion, equity, and diversity are valued, in every aspect of life. Through actively taking steps to promote accessibility and inclusivity, the Beta Gamma chapter embraces diversity and embodies AKPsi’s DEI Declaration and Commitment to continually evolve as an organization.

Alpha Kappa Psi's Declaration on DEI

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) practices are a vital component of optimal business outcomes in addition to being the right thing to do. In order to be the premier developer of principled business leaders, Alpha Kappa Psi must include awareness, understanding, training, and practice of DEI as critical parts of our work. Each of us has an important role to play in creating a more vibrant, equitable, diverse, and inclusive AKPsi. DEI is not a program, audit, or one time activity, it is a way of life, infused into all facets of our organization at every level. We are committed to aligning our organization top to bottom with DEI best practices and ensuring a culture in which our differences are valued, appreciated, and celebrated. In the true definition and spirit of inclusion, when all can show up as their true authentic selves and contribute, the bonds of our Brotherhood are strengthened.

Alpha Kappa Psi's Commitment to DEI

As an organization, we make a commitment to raising awareness and training of DEI for students, alumni, volunteers, donors, and staff. With this commitment comes dedication to evaluating governing documents, policies, procedures, programs, communication, awards, recognition, relationships, and more, and making necessary changes to better reflect an inclusive and diverse organization in culture and execution. We do so with a lens of understanding our past, acknowledging our present, and aspiring for a better future. Alpha Kappa Psi will train business leaders with a strong commitment to DEI in order to make a positive difference in organizations worldwide, regardless of size or structure.
