Rotary International just issued language strengthening its statement on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI). You can read it here. That update says Rotary is: “...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.”
 
How can our clubs take, action “…so that each person has the necessary access to resources, opportunities, networks, and support to thrive.” How can we individual Rotarians help to create an inclusive culture where each person knows they are valued and belong? Educate yourself. Talk with others. Expand your knowledge and strengthen your and your club's comittment to diversity, equity and inclusion by registering for the September 17th DTA session and attending monthly DEI committee meetings.

About the DEI Committee

Thank you to the wonderful members of the district DEI committee for their commitment to diversity and inclusion. Special thank you to the committee’s secretary Chandler Ross and welcome to Heather Taylor who is co-chair this year.
 
We are proud that the committee has included Rotarians, Rotaractors and Interactors. We were blessed to have Interact members Aysha Aftab, Devanshi Bhanjana and Yashica Choudary as very active members of the team in 2020-21, and anticipate they will accomplish so much as Rotaractors this year.
 
IF YOUR CLUB SPONSORS AN INTERACT CLUB PLEASE LET THEM KNOW THEY ARE INVITED TO JOIN THE DEI COMMITTEE.
 
All members of the Rotary family in District 7040 are welcome to join the committee or attend our meetings.

Events

We are excited that the first DTA session Sept 17th will be hosted by the DEI committee. You can register here. More details soon.
 
The DEI committee will continue to meet on Zoom at 7:00pm the third Monday of the month. All members of the Rotary family are invited to join us. The meetings are listed in the district calendar and are always at https://us02web.zoom.us/j/84234784167?pwd=bk9BWUl0Z290NkgwUjgwcDNpTmI2dz09
