DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION STATEMENT

The Schenectady Rotary Club is part of a global network that strives to build a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change.  As an organization, 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.
Founded in 1918, today’s Schenectady Rotary Club welcomes people of all backgrounds, cultures, genders, experiences and identities.  The Schenectady Rotary Club supports and strives for a membership that represents the diversity of Schenectady County and the Capital Region.
Schenectady Rotary is an organization that is open and inclusive, fair to all, builds goodwill, and benefits our communities. We want people with differing perspectives and ideas who will help Rotary take action to create lasting change in communities around the world.  If you are a like-minded individual and would like to take action to ensure fair and equitable opportunities and treatment for all, please contact us to become a member.
