Show us how your members are champions of diversity, equity, and inclusion across your projects, club, and community. We are accepting videos, photos, and essays as part of the Interact Awards.
What Does Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) mean to Rotary International?
At Rotary, we understand that cultivating a diverse, equitable, and inclusive culture is essential to realizing our vision of a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change.
Diversity. Celebrating the contributions of people of all backgrounds, across age, ethnicity, race, color, disability, learning style, religion, faith, socioeconomic status, culture, marital status, languages spoken, sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity. This also means celebrating differences in ideas, thoughts, values, and beliefs!
Equity. Making sure that each person has the necessary access to resources, opportunities, and support so that they can thrive.
Inclusion. All people hold visible and invisible qualities that make them unique! Inclusivity means each person knows they are valued and belong.
Videos, photos, and essays will be accepted as part of the Interact Awards. Nominations will be accepted from 1 September 2021 at 00:00 Chicago Time (UTC-5) until 1 December 2021 at 23:59 Chicago Time.
Each club may submit (1) video, up to (3) photos, and/or (1) essay.
Submit your nominations by 1 December 2021 for a chance to be named “Best Video,” “Best Photo,” or “Best Essay” and receive funds to support your Interact club’s next project.
Awards will be given for best video, best photo, and best essay. One (1) club will be awarded in each category and receive a financial award from Rotary International to support the Interact club's service project, as well as an award plaque and letter from the Rotary International President.
