Omega Iota Zeta was
charted on March 16, 2012 by six trailblazing Sorors. On Founders’ Day 2012,
while sitting in a local Kansas City area restaurant, six Sorors came together
to fellowship and talk about their love for Zeta.
When they departed that day, in their hearts a new fire for Zeta was lit; they
all agreed that it was time to bring their beloved Zeta to a position of
prominence in the Kansas City area. They set out to blaze new trails in Zeta
and decided to start their own chapter.
Omega Iota Zeta is poised to engage in a grass roots campaign to invite Sorors
interested in embracing change with courageous leadership and desires to extend
the objectives of Zeta. Guided by passion, purpose and our founding principles,
the chapter’s primary focus is to serve the community and strengthen the bond

Out of the resilience, drive, and determination of these six women, the Omega
Iota Zeta chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated was born. This chapter represents a new face and
ideology of what a Zeta woman is. This chapter will continue to realize the
vision set by our Five Pearls that glorious day, January 16, 1920.
Members of Omega Iota Zeta are committed to strengthening membership by
providing an environment that is both welcoming and industrious for women to
work and serve Zeta. With the precept that Zeta is both a business and a
sisterhood, Omega Iota Zeta looks to bring Sorors home to Zeta!
