The historical marginalization of women, particularly women of color, has had a significant impact on the process by which multi-cultural, multi-ethnic, and multi-racial women ascertain educational, economic, social, and the political capital in American society.
In response to this reality, seventeen women from various racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds synthesized their passion, commitment and motivation. They formed an organization that would unify women of color who were dedicated to correcting the injustices that have and that continue today to affect our communities.
On March 15, 1989, these seventeen women founded Omega Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated. Education, Diversity, and Community Service were the attributes these seventeen women incorporated into the organization and to this day they continue to serve as the foundation and spirit by which all of the members of Omega Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated act upon.
To these seventeen women, we are forever indebted to you for your dedication, foresight, ingenuity and commitment to make a difference.
