During these challenging times in our country, Alpha Kappa Psi Zeta chapter aspires to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in all aspects of our organization. We expect that all our chapter members be their authentic selves while striving to stay true to the AKPsi values - brotherhood, integrity, unity, knowledge, and service - throughout everything they accomplish. We acknowledge people's differences and seek to respond to the needs of our community, state, country, and world. Through diversity training, guest speakers, and openness to all potential and current members, Zeta chapter embodies AKPsi’s DEI Declaration and Commitment to continually evolve as an organization.
Zeta chapter follows UNL’s vision of “Every person and interaction matters” and the College of Business’ guiding principle of “Be Inclusive.” Crafted by Ali Steger, AKPsi Zeta Diversity & Inclusion Chair, and Joanna Sandvold, AKPsi Zeta Human Resource Coordinator.
AKPsi's DEI Declaration
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.
AKPsi's DEI Commitment
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.
