    ROTARY AND DEI
    Rotary strives for the fair treatment and advancement of all Rotary participants. Embracing equity means carefully considering how to provide differing levels of support, opportunities, and resources so participants have a welcoming and productive experience. 
     
    When we embrace equity, we create an environment built on respect and dignity for all participants.
