Pi Sigma Epsilon Inclusivity Statement

To the members of Pi Sigma Epsilon:

Words will never be enough to reconcile the deep brokenness born of injustice and inequality. On behalf of the Pi Sigma Epsilon National Council and Headquarters staff, we affirm publicly that all human beings deserve equal rights and that we stand in solidarity against injustice, racism, inequality and violence at all times.

To foster the change we wish to see in the world, we reflect on who we are as an organization, our creed, and the principles on which our Fraternity was founded:

Pi Sigma Epsilon Creed

I believe in the honor, value, and productivity of the Marketing and Selling Profession.

I will be honorable, sincere and loyal in all relations with my Fraternity, my college, my business and the people I serve.

I fully realize that my rewards, whatever they may be, evolve from my service to others under the guidance and help of God.

I say these words with sincerity:

That I will endeavor to live by the principles of Pi Sigma Epsilon;

That I value and revere the honor of our fellowship;

That I will endeavor to so build myself and so conduct myself that I will bring honor to my Fraternity and to my profession.

These tenants of our Fraternity are a calling, a reminder, to affect positive change by choosing to live by the ideals that guide us. If all PSE members are committed to these ideals, we collectively can affect positive change in our profession, on our campuses, in the companies we serve and in the world.

This is where it starts. And within the sphere of influence that is PSE, we will continue to affect positive change by being intentional about making membership, with all associated opportunities and benefits, accessible to a growing and diverse population who seek to serve others through adherence to the principles of Pi Sigma Epsilon. We will continue to educate ourselves and have honest conversations.

We acknowledge that we have a lot of work ahead of us and we welcome your thoughts and suggestions on how we, as a collective, can contribute to being a part of the solution that will positively impact our chapters, members, workplaces and communities. Please send your thoughts and comments to our CEO at: joan.rogala@pse.org.

Fraternally,

Joe Ashbee, National President
