Support the president's initiatives

This year, Gordon is focused on three presidential initiatives that Create Hope in the World: prioritizing mental health, building peace through virtual exchanges, and empowering girls.

"To create hope, we must continue doing our most important work, and do it better than ever before," said McInally.
Gordon encourages Rotary members to create a culture of care, both within Rotary and around the world, by making mental health a priority. He also aims to make participation more accessible by using technology to form connections. Following the initiative set forth by Past RI President Shekhar Mehta and carried on by Past RI President Jennifer Jones, he is determined to empower girls, amplify their voices, and discover new ways to improve their health and well-being.
