EMRC is part of the community-based discussion around Racial Equity and Justice hosted by the Edina Community Foundation. On behalf of our club, Andrea Humphrey and Mary Brindle are participating in community conversations led by the foundation.
 
The EMRC Diversity, Equity & Inclusion committee will present a series discussions, sharing fellowship and learning about the challenges we encounter when learning about race equity and justice. We will use a variety of resources (books, Ted Talks, other discussions) to help deepen our understanding of the concept of unconscious bias and how it plays a role in the context of our society. The topic of racial inequity and injustice is a difficult topic of discussion. We will also use a book discussion format to focus our conversations and our learning.

SUPPORTING OUR MEMBERS
Here are some ways to support Rotarians and their families.
 
Janine Krieter
2020 has been a difficult year for a lot of people and Janine was not immune to that. Janine has owned her business, Flowers of Edina, coming up on 30 years this year. The pandemic has not been kind to small business owners and Janine was and continues to be creative about offering ways to continue to keep her business afloat.  From inviting other small businesses and offering collaborative market space for them to also sell their wares to offering discounts for her flowers and gifts.
 
Here is the link to Janine's Gofundme account https://gofund.me/d9edc8f6.

2020-21 LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT SERIES

Next Topic: Values Based Leadership
Tuesday, April 20th, 6:00 p.m. 6:00 p.m.

Please join The Rotary Club of Edina’s Leadership Series in April as we welcome Paul Mooty, Vice-Chairman and Partner at the Faribault Woolen Mill Company to share an interactive learning experience entitled Values Based Leadership… “Who Are You and What Do You Stand For?” This session is open to the public so please forward this to your friends, colleagues, and employees so that can benefit as well. See you there!

WHO ARE YOU AND WHAT DO YOU STAND FOR?
How to trust who you are and your values to guide you

There are many ways to lead.  Many of us have worked under, heard about, studied, and probably tried to emulate many of these differing leadership styles.  Some believe that they must adapt their approach to mirror a leader they admire in order to be successful.  Much can be learned from others, but it can be difficult to model your leadership approach completely after someone else's. In this session our speaker will be discussing a leadership approach rooted in who you are and what matters most to you.  We will discuss:

·         Basic principles of Values Based Leadership

·         Perspectives, learnings and examples from Paul's own journey
