President’s Message

Greetings and Welcome to the website for Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated, Delta Mu Zeta Chapter

Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated was founded on January 16, 1920 on the campus of Howard University by five visionary coeds who were determined to change the world. Since our inception, our members have been upholding our founding principles of Scholarship, Service, Sisterhood, and Finer Womanhood.

On June 30, 1950 Zeta came to Manhattan and we have been making an imprint in the borough, especially in Harlem. I greet you as the President of this amazing chapter of over 80 dynamic women from diverse backgrounds and cultures who are at different levels of their careers in a myriad of disciplines.

Delta Mu Zeta Chapter is the home of leaders most notably, International Presidents of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated – Triumphant Past International President Dr. Edith V. Francis and our current International Centennial President, Valerie Hollingsworth BakerOver the years, we have had Regional Directors, State Directors, elected National, Regional and State Officers as well as appointed officers at all levels of the Sorority.

For over 70 years, our members have performed countless hours of community service in the name of Zeta and in collaboration with other organizations. We have also provided scholarships to deserving students and presented awards to community leaders. Wherever there is a need, Delta Mu Zeta is there!

Increasing our footprint in Manhattan primarily Harlem is one of the goals for my term of office and we are on our way. We are working diligently with our established community partners and pursuing partnerships with other organizations to assist us during these difficult times. Our goal is to deliver programs and initiatives in a safe or virtual environment to address the needs of those we serve.

I invite you to explore our website, join us for our public events and if you are interested, find out about joining our sisterhood or one of our auxiliaries.

In Service and In Sisterhood,


G. Joanne Yarde, MPA
President (2020 – 2022)
