Aleidra Allen is a social change advocate and entrepreneur. With a background in higher education administration, Aleidra served as a higher education practitioner for 4 years. During that time, she coordinated leadership programs and multicultural education, and advised student organizations and fraternities and sororities. However, as society entered into the current social movement, Aleidra’s career was redirected. In September of 2017, Aleidra took a leap of faith and left higher education to start her own business. She is now the founder and owner of PIE, which stands for Purpose In Everything. PIE is a social enterprise that adds purpose to everyday purchases. The business practices social change philanthropy and donates a percentage of its net sales to entities engaged in social change work. Additionally, PIE believes that education, (un)learning, and dialogue are essential to creating social change. Because of this, PIE offers general diversity education consulting and fraternity and sorority- focused diversity education, including Black Greeks for Black Lives. Through workshops, trainings, and keynotes, PIE facilitates spaces of challenge and learning, with the goal of building understanding.
