This week at Rotary : Sam Przywojski

Sam Przywojski is always up for a challenge, whether it’s hiking up mountains or helping businesses and organizations grow. As director of business development for Vendi Advertising, his enthusiastic approach and personal touch helps open doors to new possibilities. When Sam is not working, you can find him seeking outdoor adventure across the globe.

Last week at Rotary : Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
DEI Group
Thank you to the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion committee for facilitating a discussion on using language that recognizes our diversity and attempts to not offend, demean or exclude others. Changing how we speak doesn't come easily so this was a great opportunity to learn, discuss and practice using inclusive language.
Meal for this week
The meal this week is:
Roast chicken, vegetables, rice pilaf. Specialty meals will still be available.

Job Shadow Committee
Your Job Shadow Committee is offering you the opportunity to promote your business and recruit potential employees. Through an application process, we will match and place accepted high school and/or college students in your business to take tours, meet with professionals in your business to learn about your industry, or develop a mentor/mentee opportunity.
The Rotary Club of La Crosse, the Dahl School of Business at Viterbo University, the Greater La Crosse Area Chamber of Commerce, and area Interact clubs are engaged in partnering in the Rotary Job Shadow program.
We would like to initiate the Job Shadow program in September.  If you are interested in participating on the Rotary Club of La Crosse Job Shadow Committee or hosting a student, please contact Todd Ondell at todd.ondell@gmail.com.
