Diversity and Inclusion aren't just media buzzwords! Organizations that are inclusive and welcoming to those with varied characteristics and experiences have been proven to to be more creative, faster at problem solving and have better engagement of their members.
As a global network that strives to build a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change, Rotary values diversity and celebrates the contributions of people of all backgrounds, regardless of their age, ethnicity, race, color, abilities, religion, socioeconomic status, culture, sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity. Learn more about this important topic a special presentation hosted by our district in partnership with Districts 7120,7150 and 7190.

Join moderator Dr. Sim Covington, Jr., and explore the experiences of 6 panelists around diversity, equity, and inclusion January 18, 2021 at 7 PM. 

Panelists will be asked to share how their identity has impacted their lived experience in America and in Rotary. The evening will include an opportunity for Q & A with our panelists.
