DEI & OUTREACH INITIATIVES

JOSE DASILVA, CLASS OF 2026
DEI CHAIRPERSON

Here at the Xi Chapter of Delta Sigma Pi, we proudly acknowledge that we owe our vibrant community to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Without it, the organization that means so much to each and every one of us wouldn’t be the same, and we’d all be worse off as a result. As a professional business fraternity, we recognize that both the University of Michigan and the business world have a long way to go in ensuring that people of different backgrounds can be not only present, but welcomed with open arms in every space they walk into. At DSP, we understand that change starts with us, making it imperative that we take steps to foster a community that encourages curiosity and learning at every opportunity.

 

So far, we’ve made a commitment to our previously outlined goals by making DEI more than an acronym. One major way that we implement this is through our DEI Taskforce, a team on our executive committee constructed specifically to help execute initiatives related to diversity, equity and inclusion. These vary from year to year, but include events like internal implicit bias training, cross-organizational discussions, an open rush panel dedicated to DEI, and more! The initiatives and programs put on by both myself and the Taskforce are intended to not only educate our brotherhood, but the Michigan and Ross communities as a whole, pushing us all towards a more tolerant future.

In 2024, I hope that the Taskforce and I can make meaningful change by being intentional with not only what we do, but how we do it, showing that to the brothers of Delta Sigma Pi, diversity, equity, and inclusion are guiding principles in everything that we do.

 

Sincerely,

 

Jose Dasilva
