We Are Rotary: Advancing Women as Leaders

by Aug 23, 2019MOJO Blog0 comments

Women account for less than 25 percent of Rotary’s global membership and are underrepresented in leadership positions at every level, but Rotarians are ready to embrace change! Join us on August 28, 2019 from 3:00pm- 4:00pm CDT.

Currently, women make up 23 percent of our membership, and represent, on an average, 20 percent of leadership positions. Rotarians are ready to embrace change, as indicated by the record number of breakout sessions at the 2019 Rotary International Convention in Hamburg dedicated to the topic of women’s advancement in Rotary’s leadership. During one of these sessions, Rotarians Beth Keck and Todd Jenkins collected ideas from more than 500 members, both female and male, about how to take action and break down the barriers to women’s advancement in leadership positions. Hear the proposals and add your voice to this critical conversation.

During this webinar, we will:

• Explore the barriers that women face when considering leadership positions
• Challenge the institutional and personal viewpoints that may be limiting women’s advancement
• Discuss the benefits—and necessity– of Rotary being a diverse, equitable, and inclusive organization
• Develop specific actions to take in your clubs and communities

Everyone who registers will receive access to the recording and slides.
