Delta Zeta(Oxford, Ohio)  Today’s woman uses the knowledge gained from a solid educational foundation to transform her life, fulfill her goals and make a difference beyond herself. Where can that knowledge be found? Delta Zeta Sorority provides this next step in personal and organizational development to its collegiate and alumnae members with Plaid. The Sorority has partnered with Plaid Strategies to enhance the educational and leadership opportunities we provide to our members.

Plaid uses The Birkman Method®, a personality assessment tool, to pinpoint specific behaviors, needs and motivations imbedded within each individual. Results of the assessment outline a person’s interests, usual behavior, perceptual filter and stress behavior. This information is presented to the participant visually by classifying their characteristics in broad colors. Members then explore and discover new insight about themselves and their relationships with those around them.

Jeanine P. Triplett, National President, said, “This is one of the most exciting opportunities that Delta Zeta has ever provided to our members. We are preparing women for important roles in a changing world. It starts with what we know about ourselves. Plaid is another step in fulfilling our promise to our Sorority and ourselves to enrich the world.” Learn more Delta Zeta’s fulfillment of this mission here.

The Sorority has begun training all active chapter presidents and alumnae leadership on implementing Plaid’s programs. Fundraising efforts for the different development programs will continue to support this exciting endeavor. Ultimately, all Delta Zeta undergraduates will take part in the Plaid program, giving them the opportunity to enhance their self-awareness and to better understand human behavior. Delta Zeta believes in the persistent advancement of the organization, and is committed to offering the best programs and services to its members.
