Your Words Matter!
By:  Jim Munro, District 7780 Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee, RC of Dover
This new Rotary year, we continue to embrace many of Rotary International initiatives. The last Diversity, Equity and Inclusion survey that was sent out to District 7780 Rotary Club Presidents gleaned some important information. In the next few newsletters, those words will be shared with you.
Quote: What inspiring and qualified individual would be available in our district to deliver a program on DEI to our club?
The District DEI committee is collecting speaker resources. Last year the Rotary Club of Dover hosted several great speakers including Members of the DE&I committee of Wentworth-Douglas Hospital, a representative for the Black Heritage Trail of NH which resulted in a club field trip to Portsmouth to tour local black history sites, and the Director of Seacoast Outright which is an organization that serves LGBTQ+ youth in the NH and Southern Maine seacoast communities.
Rotary International President Gordon McInally states in his video, that “DEI is making Rotary an open inclusive organization that embraces the best people, the best ideas and the best partnerships no matter where they come from.”
The next District 7780 Diversity, Equity and Inclusion meeting will be held on Monday, October 9, 2023 at 4 p.m.
