“the path we as a group have chosen to pursue”
Doesn’t this mean it’s technically no longer a sorority?

Harvard Sorority Goes Gender-Neutral After School’s Single-Gender Ban
The Harvard chapter of Kappa Kappa Gamma announced Monday it disbanded from its national organization and has reformed as a gender-neutral social club.
Kappa Kappa Gamma is the first Harvard sorority to become gender-neutral after the school adopted a policy that punishes members of single-gender groups, reported The Harvard Crimson Monday. The sorority has rebranded as the Fleur-de-Lis, a group that, while intended for “female-identifying individuals,” will be open to men.
“The formation of The Fleur is the culmination of numerous discussions spanning the last two or so years within Harvard’s Chapter of Kappa Kappa Gamma and with the administration,” said Tiana Menon, president of the Fleur-de-Lis. “[Administrators] have helped shape the path we as a group have chosen to pursue.”
Menon noted the influence of Harvard’s December 2017 policy banning members of single-gender groups from holding campus leadership offices, becoming varsity athletic captains, and receiving Harvard endorsement for programs like the Rhodes Scholarship. At one point, a Harvard faculty committee was considering banning single-gender groups entirely.
