Dear Rotarian:
This week I gave a presentation on the status on women in senior management positions based on the 2023 Women in Business Report issued by Grant Thornton International for 19 years in a row.
The report shows positive progress, even though is very slow. At the current rate only 35% of senior management positions will be occupied by women by 2025. Extremely far from parity. You can access the full report in our Albums section.
Reminder: Rotary International and District dues will be billed to members at the beginning of each semester, starting July 1, 2023.
Dates to remember:
May 26, 2023 – Honoring Veterans at San Patricio Plaza
May 30, 2023 – No meeting due to Memorial Day Holiday
Best regards,

Si no sabes pintar, eso no será impedimento para participar, porque la actividad te llevará a ir trabajando tu obra de arte mientras compartes y si deseas te das una copa de vino.

Last Saturday (Nov. 05, 2022) 180 people showed up to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Interact Clubs. The event which was held in the Arecibo Country Club gave recognition to the students and leaders that have given of themselves for the cause. Not just that there was fun and games for all. The Rotary Club of San Juan's Interact Club from the Caribbean Preparatory School was in charge of the decoration, with some economic support of our club.
