97 ways to make panhellenic recruitment more authentic

97 Ways To Make Panhellenic Recruitment More Authentic

 by 25 Women From 17 Different Sororities

This project started after a member of the Phired Up staff had one of the many conversations we often have with Panhellenic leaders that included the young woman (who was trying incredibly hard to lead with strength and confidence) saying something like this…

“I want recruitment to be more authentic. I want our sororities to be more approachable. I want recruitment to be more real. I want us to not just call it ‘values-based recruitment,’ I want it to actually be more values-based. Probably 95% of the women in our community agree. But I feel stuck. We have this big process with big rules and we have pressure from lots of different places. Can you just tell me real things you think we should really do?”

So, we asked our whole team. And no surprise; within about 5 minutes there were 20+ specific ideas.

But then we wanted to go further.

So, we asked a bunch of sorority women who do sorority life professionally to chime in. You’ll see the whole list of collaborators below. This was written by 25 women representing 17 different sororities!
