Economic Development

National economic trends, such as unstable employment, the threat to Social Security as we know it, and the widening gap between wealth and poverty are the basis for the development of Financial Fortitude, the current Economic Development Program Initiative of Delta Sigma Theta, Incorporated. Financial Fortitude is a process that will help program participants to set and define goals, develop a plan to achieve them, and to put the plan into action. The process serves as a blueprint to address all aspects of personal finances. The goal of Dade County Alumnae Chapter is to spread financial education throughout the Miami-Dade Community.

Our current and past initiatives include:

  • Entrepreneurship & Financial Literacy Workshops for the community
  • Resume Review/Interviewing Skills partnership with Florida Memorial University
  • Business Etiquette Workshops for students
  • Support Black Business Weekend
