At Rotary, we have no tolerance for racism.
Promoting respect, celebrating diversity, demanding ethical leadership, and working tirelessly to advance peace are central tenets of our work.
We have more work to do to create more just, open and welcoming communities for all people.
We know there are no easy fixes and that challenging conversations and work lie before all of us.
Rotary’s strength has long been our ability and commitment to bringing people together.
We will tap into that strength now as we stand with those who are working for peace and justice.
Rotary will do our part to listen, learn and take action to ensure that we continue to contribute to making positive change.

RLI provides foundational knowledge of the machinery of Rotary, starting at a relevant and personal level. That learning can be brought into play right away for the benefit of all members in all clubs.
The RLI program is divided into 3 segments. First segment of RLI is about YOU, as a ROTARIAN, understanding your place in the organization, gaining confidence as you learn the essentials, and seeing the opportunities open to you. The Second segment of RLI is about your role in your club: being engaged, being an effective leader, building teams, contributing to good communication and more. And, importantly, how to use your growing knowledge of Rotary. The Third segment is about how you journey on, how you help to build your club using media & public relations, planning strategically for leadership, looking at service opportunities outside your club - perhaps internationally - and understanding the workings of The Rotary Foundation. Each level builds upon the one before it, and creates a strong knowledge-based foundation for you as an active Rotarian leader.
The Fall 2023 RLI was held at Holiday Inn, Milton on October 21st..
While president Kiran Duggal completed her third part and got a certificate of completion, Peace Anyira completed her part one of RLI. it was a day full of fun and learning.
