At Rotary, we're committed to treating everyone with dignity and respect, allowing everyone's voice to be heard, and providing equitable opportunities for fellowship, service, and leadership.

Our members want and expect Rotary to be a diverse, equitable, and inclusive organization. Although the Rotary experience may differ from country to country, issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion are globally relevant.

Displaying a pride or progress flag on your Rotary Club's webpage is a symbolic yet profound gesture that promotes inclusivity not only within your club but also in Rotary District 5500 and on an international scale. It serves as a visible testament to your club's commitment to creating an inclusive and welcoming environment for individuals of all sexual orientations and gender identities. Inclusivity is one of the cornerstones of Rotary's core values, and by proudly featuring these flags, your club demonstrates that it embraces diversity and recognizes the unique perspectives and contributions of LGBTQ+ members. This openness not only attracts individuals from the LGBTQ+ community but also encourages current members to engage in meaningful conversations about diversity and equality, fostering a more inclusive club culture.
