100 Empowering Women of Sigma Delta Tau


With over 65,000 empowering women who call, or have called, Sigma Delta Tau their own, narrowing down a list to recognize just 100 women is seemingly impossible.  We sought nominations through the  Spring 2016 Torch, email outreach and social media, as well as combed through the Organization archives.  Here are 100 empowering women who have served SDT, their community and/or their profession, and lived up to the ideals of our sorority.
