Tri Delta is boldly leading the way by addressing important issues such as gender equity and barriers women face in the workplace. Our Fraternity is proud to partner with the American Association of University Women (AAUW) to address these complex societal issues and take an important step toward closing the pay gap. AAUW’s mission is to advance equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy and research.
AAUW Work Smart is designed to empower women with the skills they need to successfully negotiate their salaries and benefits. The Toronto Alumnae Chapter was selected to host one of these inspiring workshops and you’re invited to join us!
Over the course of the two-hour session, you’ll gain confidence in your negotiation style through facilitated discussion and role-play. Topics to be covered include:
- How to identify and articulate your personal value
- How to develop an arsenal of persuasive responses and other negotiation strategies, including how to get a raise or promotion
- How to conduct objective market research to benchmark a target salary and benefits
- Information about the wage gap, including its long-term consequences

The Establishment of Canada Alpha and Early Residence History.
By Christine Kralik
In 1927, a group of women at the University of Toronto formed a local sorority called Kappa Phi Alpha. In 1929, the women of this same sorority applied to Delta Delta Delta for a charter, and this request was granted. The Canada Alpha Chapter was officially installed on May 24, 1930, and there were 28 Charter members, most of whom were students enrolled at University College. The initiation banquet was held at the Royal York Hotel that evening.
At that time, the Chapter occupied an apartment at 2 Sultan Court (now 2 Sultan Street, see photo), just east of the Windsor Arms Hotel. In subsequent years, the Chapter moved around several times, first to other apartment buildings, among them 321 Bloor West (the original building is no longer extant; the Woodsworth College Residence stands on that site now), and then to different houses along St. George St. (first 85 St. George in 1933; then 122 St. George in 1939; and then 136 St. George in 1948.) In 1966, the University of Toronto identified that block on the west side of St. George as the ideal site for the new Robarts Library, and the Chapter had to vacate the property and find a new home. 30 Madison Avenue was identified as an ideal new home for the Chapter.
