Driving Growth from the Inside-Out with Adam Brotman

Most brands say retaining customers is their top marketing priority, yet they continue to focus their resources on new customer acquisition -- trying to grow their business from the "outside-in."  Adam Brotman, CEO of Brightloom, will share how consumer brands can grow their business from the "inside-out" by activating their digital ecosystems and owned channels to create predictable and sustainable business growth.

Resuming the Discussion on “White Fragility” by Robin DiAngelo

Wednesday, May 27 at 11:00 am

The Peacebuilder Committee Book Club is resuming the discussion of “White Fragility” by Robin DiAngelo. Like the initial discussion in February, it will be led by Paula Houston with small group breakouts. “White Fragility” is a New York Times best-selling book exploring how racism as a practice is not restricted to ‘bad people’ and the counterproductive reactions even the best-meaning people can have when their assumptions about race are challenged. Your Peacebuilders Committee invites all Seattle 4 Rotary members to join us in this read and discussion. Click here to find the book on Amazon.

Seattle 4 Rotary - Standing With Our Neighbors Through Food Banks

Thank you to many of our members who have been sending online gifts to their local food banks! We invite those of you who are able, to join in this week. 

Who is your local food bank?  Look below at the list that highlights many food banks in areas surrounding downtown and/or see the map-list link below to find your own.
  • $100 provides 20 school-age kids with a weekend food pack including breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and snacks for Friday night - Sunday.  ($5/each) at the Ballard Food Bank.    
  • Ballard food bank also serves Magnolia, Queen Anne, and north to Broadview neighborhoods.
  • 100% match is made for one gift per person to your local neighborhood food bank (see list of examples below).
  • For this matching fund, gifts to large food organizations, like Harvest Against Hunger are not matched – but are welcomed without the match.
  • Limit of one gift per member can be matched.   
  • Gifts must be made by 5/31.  (April matches are now complete.)
