Rotary recently introduced our latest global public image campaign: People of Action. This campaign brings the Rotary story to life in a way that narrows the gap between public awareness and understanding.

The People of Action campaign communicates the essence of Rotary and reflects our values, such as:

  • We build lifelong relationships.
  • We honor our commitments.
  • We connect diverse perspectives.
  • We apply our leadership and expertise to solve social issues.

It tells our story in our own voice, which is:

  • Smart — we are insightful and discerning.
  • Compassionate — we tackle community challenges with empathy and understanding.
  • Persevering — we find lasting solutions to systemic problems.
  • Inspiring — we encourage others to take action, conveying hope, enthusiasm, and passion.

As a Rotarian, you’re also a brand ambassador. You can tell the story of Rotary and how we are people of action in communities worldwide.
