In 1929, Mrs. Lola M. Parker of Chicago, Illinois founded Iota Phi Lambda Sorority, a national business and professional women's organization. The sorority was established to offset the results caused by the great depression and to add prestige to career businesswomen and the field of business.
In July 1936, Psi Chapter was chartered with 14 wonderful women of Dallas. Psi Chapter has continued the vision of Mrs. Parker by maturing into a chapter that stimulates, motivates and fosters growth of its membership while volunteering services throughout the metroplex. Psi Chapter is currently celebrating 73 years of sisterhood and service to the Dallas community.
