Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
At Rotary, we understand that cultivating a diverse, equitable, and inclusive
culture is essential to realizing our vision of a world where people unite and take
action to create lasting change.
We value diversity and celebrate the contributions of people of all backgrounds,
across age, ethnicity, race, color, disability, learning style, religion, faith,
socioeconomic status, culture, marital status, languages spoken, sex, sexual
orientation, and gender identity as well as differences in ideas, thoughts, values,
and beliefs.
Recognizing that individuals from certain groups have historically experienced
barriers to membership, participation, and leadership, we commit to advancing
equity in all aspects of Rotary, including in our community partnerships, so that
each person has the necessary access to resources, opportunities, networks, and
support to thrive.
We believe that all people hold visible and invisible qualities that inherently make
them unique, and we strive to create an inclusive culture where each person
knows they are valued and belong.
In line with our value of integrity, we are committed to being honest and
transparent about where we are in our DEI journey as an organization, and to
continuing to learn and do better.
