future. Rotary International President

One of the most pressing aspects of diversity
to address in our membership is the age of
our members. When you look around at
almost any Rotary event, it becomes
immediately obvious that the age range in the
room does not promise a sustainable future
for our organization. Our membership is near
a record high, and we are bringing in new
members all the time – yet only a small
minority of those members are young enough
to have decades of Rotary service ahead of
them. To ensure a strong and capable Rotary
leadership tomorrow, we need to bring in
young and capable members today.

We also cannot discuss diversity in Rotary
without addressing the issue of gender. It is
difficult to imagine that just three decades
ago, women could not join Rotary. Although
we have come a long way since then, the
legacy of that misguided policy is still with us.
Far too many people continue to think of
Rotary as an organization only for men, and
that idea has had a detrimental effect on both
our public image and our membership
