Read the full interview with Diana and learn more about her experiences with Glenora Rotary, her hobbies & interests, and something positive she’s learned about herself during this pandemic.

ABOUT THE ROTARY CLUB OF EDMONTON GLENORA
 
Founded in May 1990, the Rotary Club of Edmonton Glenora was the first club in North America to be chartered by professional women. This was one year after the U.S. Supreme Court decision permitting women to be admitted as members of Rotary Clubs around the world.
 
The founding President of the Rotary Club of Edmonton Glenora, Vi Becker, was inspired to demonstrate the integral contribution that women from all professions could make to Rotary's core principle of Service above Self.
 
The club began with 25 women. During the first year of its existence,  the club found its niche within the Rotary family and identified its strengths and goals. It had no interest in reverse discrimination, and in 1992, began seeking both male and female members.  Lawyer Rick Cruickshank was the first male who joined the club. He was regularly introduced as the first male member of what began as all-female Rotary Club, and he wore this distinction as a “badge of honour.” 


 
It has grown to be a club of vibrant and committed male and female professionals from the Edmonton area, and is an active collaborator within Rotary District 5370.
 
The club has set its service focus on women and children in need. It applies this strategic focus liberally and contributes to a wide variety of compelling initiatives locally, nationally, and internationally.

ABOUT ROTARY AND ROTARIANS

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

As a global network that strives to build a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change, Rotary values diversity and celebrates 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.

Everyone is welcome in Rotary.

Rotarians Strive to Follow the Four-Way Test

The Four-Way Test of the things we think, say or do is a test used by Rotarians world-wide as a moral code for personal and business relationships. The test can be used in almost any aspect of life. 

The Rotary Four-Way Test

  1. Is it the truth?
  2. Is it fair to all concerned?
  3. Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
  4. Will it be beneficial to all concerned?

The Rotarian Code of Conduct

As a Rotarian, I will:

  1. Act with integrity and high ethical standards in my personal and professional life
  2. Deal fairly with others and treat them and their occupations with respect
  3. Use my professional skills through Rotary to mentor young people, help those with special needs, and improve people’s quality of life in my community and in the world
  4. Avoid behavior that reflects adversely on Rotary or other Rotarians
  5. Help maintain a harassment-free environment in Rotary meetings, events, and activities; report any suspected harassment; and help ensure non-retaliation to those individuals that report harassment
