At Rotary, we have no tolerance for racism. Promoting respect, celebrating diversity, demanding ethical leadership, and working tirelessly to advance peace are central tenets of our work. 
We have more work to do to create more just, open and welcoming communities for all people. 
We know there are no easy fixes and that challenging conversations and work lie before all of us. Rotary’s strength has long been our ability and commitment to bringing people together. We will tap into that strength now as we stand with those who are working for peace and justice. 
Rotary will do our part to listen, learn and take action to ensure that we continue to contribute to making positive change.
As a global network that strives to build a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change, Rotary values diversity and cele-brates 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. 
We're creating an organization that is more open and inclusive, fair to all, builds goodwill, and benefits our communities. We want people with differing perspectives and ideas who will help Rotary take ac-tion to create lasting change in communities around the world. 
Through Rotary, you'll find unique opportunities to get involved. Everyone is welcome in Rotary. 
Diversity: Rotary welcomes people of all backgrounds, cultures, experiences, and identities. 
Equity: Rotary strives for the fair treatment, opportunity, and advancement of all Rotary partici-pants.
Inclusion: Rotary is working to create experiences where all people feel welcomed, respected, and valued. 
A top priority for Rotary is growing and diversifying our membership to make sure we reflect the communities we serve.
