National Global Entrepreneurship Week on November, 2017: What is Alpha Kappa Alpha Skee Week?

National Global Entrepreneurship Week 2017. Global entrepreneurship – Global Entrepreneurship Program Master provided in Europe Asia USA

What is Alpha Kappa Alpha Skee Week?

Skee Week is an opportunity for members of Alpha Kappa Alpha to showcase the different platforms the organization is targeting. Skee Week can vary from campus to campus, and sometimes, Skee Week concludes in an Interest Meeting for ladies considering or desiring membership in the sorority. Each campus is different; therefore, the specific time and location of events will be different as well. On my current campus, Skee Week has another name, but the intent is still the same.

Sometimes, people in the community participate in the various platforms to help us reach the people who need the most help. It is an excellent opportunity to learn more about what we are doing as a national organization of women REALLY HELPING IN THE COMMUNITY.

The following lists our platforms under the administration of Barbara McKenzie:

PLATFORM #1

Non-Traditional Entrepreneur

Women are seizing the reins of entrepreneurship because they realize that it is the key to economic survival. As they become more of the business landscape and their enterprises grow, women are coming face to face with the challenges of managing and expanding new ventures. To build a strong foundation for women in business, Alpha Kappa Alpha will create economic expertise, success in business and power networking opportunities for the non-traditional entrepreneur.

PLATFORM #2

Economic Keys to Success

Economic development is expanding its reach to a new global frontier. The Sorority must be poised to compete in these world markets. Simultaneously, living standards within the Black community must be improved. To achieve these goals, Alpha Kappa Alpha will, through education, synergy and partnerships, develop and disseminate the economic keys to success.

PLATFORM #3

Economic Growth of the Black Family

The strength of the Black community hinges on the viability of the family. If the family foundation is weak, so too will be the broader societal structure that gives life and nourishes the family unit. Alpha Kappa Alpha is sensitive to the fact that within the core structure, the Black male, in particular, faces potentially daunting challenges. Recognizing this, a powerful remedy lies in devising strategies for assisting young males in overcoming the formidable challenges to their educational development and well-being. Through activities that enable, support and provide access, Alpha Kappa Alpha will work to achieve the economic growth of the Black family.

PLATFORM #4

Undergraduate Signature Program:

Economic Educational Advancement Through Technology

Technology must be mastered if there is any hope of economic educational advancement. To address this powerful reality, Alpha Kappa Alpha resolves to work with higher educational institutions and other organizations that reach students to develop an exemplary model technology access and training program that serves the community and becomes part of the central activities of the institution. Driven by this platform, the Sorority will initiate an undergraduate signature program: Economic Educational Advancement through Technology.

PLATFORM #5

Health Resource Management and Economics

To reach that stratosphere of satisfaction where one is physically and mentally fit and poised to embrace all of life's rewards and challenges requires a balance of emotional intelligence, optimal psychology and spirituality. Studies prove that when all of these elements are in divine order, physical health, relationships and life satisfaction will be the result. Through health resource management and economics, Alpha Kappa Alpha will address the many health issues and crises that face the Black community in the United States and globally. The mandate in this platform is to gain emotional empowerment, develop social support networks and raise public awareness.

I hope this helps or answers your question . . .

More impressive, DePaul or University of Arizona?

More impressive, DePaul or University of Arizona?

Arizona is ranked higher, but DePaul is very respected. Arizona is ranked 120 nationally and DePaul is ranked 136. I would choose DePaul because it is in the third largest city. It would be easy to get a job after college from DePaul. The school is known for business. Here is DePaul school rankings.
