A little more women’s history in Rotary, our District and our Club;

Today, 306,600 of Rotary’s 1.1 million international members from 46,000 clubs are women (roughly 30%). Locally, Rotary District chapter 5110, has 1140 women members (close to half).

Medford Rogue Rotary’s first female members were Steff Johnson and Ruth Rabinovitch in 1987.

Our Rotary Club’s first woman president was Gail Snow in 1994 and today we are proud to have Kellie Hill as our acting President. 

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Position Statement
As a global network that strives to build a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change, 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.

Rotary will cultivate a diverse, equitable, and inclusive culture in which people from underrepresented groups have greater opportunity to participate as members and leaders.
Each club shall endeavor to build a well-balanced membership that celebrates diversity.
