Our Fellowship focuses on ‘friendship first’ to create a fellowship that is a safe, inclusive, understanding and welcoming community of Rotary Family that fosters goodwill and peace, and realising a world that achieves fundamental fairness and equality for LGBT+ people.
We aim to:
- Grow Rotary awareness of and engagement with the Fellowship across the globe
- Organise social and networking events for the Fellowship at the annual Rotary International Convention
- Raise the Fellowship’s profile within Rotary International to increase engagement of LGBT+ members and allies.
- Survey members (at least once annually) to see what people find valuable about the Fellowship and what could be improved
