Exploring the Black Experience in Rotary on Thursday, 25 February at 2 pm MST.


“My humanity is bound up with yours, for we can only be human together.” 
-Archbishop Desmond Tutu-  

Dear club and district leaders,
Humans are composed of unique and intersecting sets of social identities, defined by our physical, social, and mental characteristics. Examples include race/ethnicity, gender, social class/socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, disabilities, and religion/religious beliefs. By considering each other’s lives, experiences, and perspectives, we allow a community to be not only about what we have in common but what makes us different.

Register now for, Exploring the Black Experience in Rotary on Thursday, 25 February at 15:00 Chicago time (UTC-5), and submit your questions to our experts. A recording of the session will be available to everyone who registers.

Through hearing stories of Black Rotarians around the word, we will:

·      Open ourselves to talking about race and identity. 

·      Become aware and acknowledge how our own social identities impact the club and community experience. 

·      Allow space for all Rotarians to bring their full, most authentic selves to our organization.

We look forward to hearing your thoughts and questions.
