The Downtown Akron Kiwanis Foundation operates in accordance with Kiwanis International’s Non-Discrimination Policy
In 2008, delegates at the Kiwanis International convention adopted a resolution that encourages and empowers clubs to create environments that develop and nurture mutual respect for all, and to celebrate the inclusiveness of all Kiwanis members. The language reads:
Therefore, be it resolved that the delegates assembled at the 2008 Kiwanis International convention in Orlando, Florida, and all Kiwanis leaders and members to take action to create a culture and club environment that develops and nurtures mutual respect for all and celebrates the inclusiveness of our beloved Kiwanis.
Diversity, Equality and Inclusion: Kiwanis leaders help team members feel comfortable, so they can pour their authentic selves into a project. We manage a team diverse with people of all race, color, religion, gender, gender expression, age, national origin, disability, marital status, sexual orientation or military experience.
