Fellow Rotarian Wendy McDonald will be leading members through a network mapping activity.

One of our members, Paige Reeves and Wendy will speaking to our club about the Rotary Employment Partnership (REP). 

"Inclusion Alberta and Rotary Clubs work in partnership to:

  • Create real jobs -- Rotary Clubs and members will work in partnership with Inclusion Alberta and the Government of Alberta to develop jobs for people with developmental disabilities within the business community. Together we explore the possibility of creating genuine and meaningful employment opportunities. Inclusion Alberta and the Government of Alberta link employers to potential employees with developmental disabilities. Inclusion Alberta and the Government of Alberta also provide the resources, expertise and on-the-job supports to ensure a successful outcome. Through the partnership, employers and employees will learn how to sustain and facilitate the successful inclusion of people with developmental disabilities in the workforce. Each Rotary Club partner sets its own commitment as to how many people with developmental disabilities they would hope to see employed during the course of the partnership.  Individual Rotary members may also consider the possibility of creating an employment opportunity for a person with developmental disabilities. Through this initiative there is the potential for Rotary Clubs and members to directly and personally make a powerful and wonderful difference in the life of a person with developmental disabilities.
  • Share the dream -- Rotary Clubs, in partnership with Inclusion Alberta and the Government of Alberta, through their community involvement and commitment, promote the employment of people with developmental disabilities. The highly respected community voice of Rotary are coupled with the voices of families who have sons and daughters with developmental disabilities.  The community needs to learn more about the potential of people with developmental disabilities and the value of creating real jobs.  The partnership develops resource materials (e.g., print ads, posters, brochures, radio ads, etc.) to be shared with the business and broader community through a variety of media.  These collaboratively developed public awareness materials highlight Rotary Clubs’ commitment to the employment of people with developmental disabilities."

Nelson Scott will speaking to our club about: "Improve retention, boost morale and increase engagement with high-value, low-cost staff recognition. Your resources— time and money—may be limited, but that doesn’t have to prevent you from recognizing staff in ways that they will value. There are simple, easy-to-use tools and techniques that you can use to acknowledge the contributions and achievements of staff, volunteers and others in your life."

Gem Munro will speak about how Amarok Society provides education to the poorest children in the city slums of Bangladesh and Pakistan in a unique way; rather than opening schools for children, we teach their mothers. Each mother then becomes a neighbourhood teacher, allowing Amarok Society to economically reach far more children than with the traditional school model. In particular, Gem will speak to the social impact of education and the lives of the women who are transforming their communities.
