International Badge Day

International Badge Day is Monday, March 7

RSVP to the Badge Day event from NPC on Facebook here

International Badge Day was established in 1997 by the National Panhellenic Conference to set aside a day for women -- in sororities in all different umbrella organizations -- throughout the world to wear their sorority badges or letters in a celebration of sisterhood.

This year’s theme is: “Wear Your Letters on Your Heart.”

Join us in celebrating by "Wearing Your Letters on Your Heart" and inviting all sorority women you know to do the same! You can also wear your badge virtually by making it your profile picture on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. that day. Be sure to use #badgeday16 when posting.

Happy Women's History Month!

Women's History Month
Working to Form a More Perfect Union:
Honoring Women in Public Service and Government


The National Women's History Month theme for 2016 honors women who have shaped America's history and its future through their public service and government leadership.

Although often overlooked and undervalued, collectively they have dramatically influenced our public policy and the building of viable institutions and organizations. From championing basic human rights to ensuring access and equal opportunity for all Americans, they have led the way in establishing a stronger and more democratic country.

Each of these public leaders succeeded against great odds. The diversity of their experiences demonstrates both the challenges and the opportunities women in public service have faced. Their ability to use the art of collaboration to create inclusive solutions and non-partisan policies, as well as their skill and determination, serve to inspire future generations. The tenacity of each Honoree underlines the fact that women from all cultural backgrounds in all levels of public service and government are essential in the continuing work of forming a more perfect union.
