Reaching out to non-English speakers

Multicultural Awareness

A valuable experience at our Chapter was provided by International Councilor Willie (Awilda) Guadalupe. Willie gave her report in Spanish to a mostly English-speaking audience to help us experience what it is like to participate in a meeting where the language spoken is not your own. Those not knowing Spanish quickly realized what it is like to be “the other.” A discussion on inclusivity followed. Willie also reported on the success of conference calls with Spanish-speaking formators from across the country. She is working on how to make this service available to those who speak Korean. Please contact Willie for assistance in working with bilingual fraternities, and reaching out to non-English speakers.
