Rotarian Bill Ptacek worked with the Rotary Employment Partnership to open up job opportunities at the Calgary Public Library for people with developmental disabilities.  Our October Newsletter highlights the success of inclusive hiring at the Library. 
 
As CEO of the Library, Bill Ptacek opened the door to discussions about inclusive hiring two years ago, and the Partnership worked with the Library every step of the way to make sure they have the right people for the right job.  Bill said this week that "The Calgary Public Library wanted this to be a model for other public sector employers.  We would like our very positive experience to translate to more opportunities at municipal, provincial and even federal levels of government."
 
Our Club's Activities
At the recommendation of the Major Donations Committee, the Board has agreed to support the proposals for donations for several organizations in 2017.  Each proposal describes a strong partnership initiating a new service approach or otherwise expanding services to enhance the capacity of the organizations to meet essential community needs, particularly for those who are more vulnerable. 
For more information, see the summary of the presentation held on May 16.

With the Rotary Club of Calgary, Downtown's $2,000,000 investment, we join a $21,000,000 project in partnership with United Way and The City of Calgary. Both partners have a deep knowledge of the social issues facing Calgarians. Rotarians will be involved in the consultation process with the 6 identified communities, where we will help them create Community Hubs that do three things:
  • Reduce the social isolation of Community residents
  • Provide access to services and programs
  • Support local residents to get involved and create change
