Our commitment to equity, Diversity and inclusion

Diversity, equity, and inclusion are at the heart of everything we do. Our commitment to creating a welcoming and equitable environment for all is as strong as our passion for connecting young minds across the globe.

Everyone is welcome!

At North Star Rotary Youth Exchange, we deeply understand the importance of fostering a diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment in alignment with our mission of connecting young minds across borders. We highly value diversity and embrace individuals from all backgrounds, regardless of age, ethnicity, race, ability, learning style, religious beliefs, faith, socioeconomic status, cultural heritage, marital status, languages spoken, gender, sexual orientation, and gender identity. We also celebrate differences in ideas, thoughts, values, and beliefs.

Recognizing that certain groups have faced historical barriers to participation and leadership, we are committed to promoting equity across all facets of our organization, including our community partnerships. Our aim is to ensure that everyone has equal access to resources, opportunities, networks, and support to thrive in our programs.

We firmly believe that every individual possesses both visible and invisible qualities that make them unique, and our goal is to cultivate an inclusive culture where each person knows they are valued and truly belong.

In line with our core value of integrity, we are dedicated to transparency about our journey in promoting Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) within our organization. We are committed to continuous learning and improvement, striving to create an even more inclusive and welcoming environment for all. Together, we aim to make a positive impact in the lives of young people, uniting diverse voices and fostering lasting change.
