Connecting Across Differences: Philip N. Tan

Rotary takes pride in its diversity that cuts across continents, gender, political affiliations, culture, age, and ethnicity. 

The incoming batch of governors in the Philippine districts are an interesting microcosm capturing the diversity of Rotary, and yet there are discernible attributes common among them—the strongest of which are a desire to bring unity and peace in their districts, and the firmness with which they assert their decisiveness. 

Introducing the governors for Rotary Year 2019 to 2020.
