Yesterday some RGBI Rotaractors attended the RIBI Presidential Handover, where Nan McCreadie was inaugurated as the first female President of Rotary International in Great Britain & Ireland.  We previously reblogged a post Let’s Talk About Sex!, which considers whether Rotary will ever have equal membership between men and women.  Witnessing the historic moment yesterday first hand has filled me with hope that one day women and men will be equal in all aspects, including in organisations such as Rotary, across the world.

Rotaract has the potential to play a massive role in the future of Rotary, and with the clubs in Great Britain & Ireland being well represented by both young men and women, and the support of RIBI President Nan McCreadie, RGBI can play a role in promoting equality in Great Britain & Ireland.
