Keith Jenkins, 2016 Rotarian Magazine photo contest judge, speaks to The Rotarian

Before Keith Jenkins made a name for himself as the guy you hire to shake up your organization’s digital strategy, he decided to shake up his own life. “Near the end of my first year of law school,” he recalls, “I started to rethink what I wanted to do.” He kept coming back to what he had loved since childhood: photography.

“I had some rudimentary skills taking pictures and could develop my own photographs,” Jenkins says, and he wanted to improve those skills. “One friend was concerned that I was losing interest in becoming a lawyer, and she didn’t think that was smart.” She devised a plan, connecting him with a photographer who took him on as an assistant, in the hope of teaching him how hard it was to be a freelance photographer – schlepping equipment, living assignment to assignment. Instead, Jenkins was hooked. “I did finish law school, but right after that I took a year off to put a portfolio together.”

He started freelancing and was hired at the Boston Globe and later as a staff photographer at the Washington Post. In 1996, he became the photo department’s liaison to the Post’s newest venture: a website. “The Post was a strong visual newspaper, so we tried to make sure the Web reflected that,” he says. After a few years at AOL, Jenkins returned to thePost and continued his work bridging the print-digital divide. Then NPR approached him to create its own digital presence. “They were looking for someone who could come in and build a multimedia team,” he says. Jenkins had never worked in radio, but in five years he expanded NPR’s multimedia team from three people to 15 and worked on a project that won the organization its first Emmy.

That’s when the calls from headhunters started.

One of those calls came from National Geographic, which asked Jenkins to help shepherd the now-128-year-old institution into the digital age. His title is general manager of National Geographic Digital, but he says he’s just a guy who encourages organizations to confront the status quo and embrace difficult challenges. He spoke with Contributing Editor Vanessa Glavinskas from his Washington, D.C., office.

THE ROTARIAN: What went through your mind when National Geographic came calling?

JENKINS: In all honesty, I was a little concerned. It’s an organization with a rich history, and I wanted to make sure it was going to be a good fit for me. When you’re working to move legacy media into the digital age, you have to be a change agent. I wanted to be sure that National Geographic was really ready for change.

TR: Were they?

JENKINS: Every organization attempting a change gets to a point when they have to do something that really changes the fabric of the organization. That’s where a lot of organizations turn back. National Geographic struggled with that in 2014. The end point was the merger with 21st Century Fox and moving the media properties into a for-profit partnership.

TR: That merger made headlines. Fox took ownership of National Geographic’s media properties, but the nonprofit still exists as a separate entity. How has that affected things?

JENKINS: The noise was louder than the reality. There had already been a partnership with Fox for 18 years, since the creation of the National Geographic TV channel. A lot of the concerns raised outside of the organization – that the merger would change our mission or change our direction – have been answered. Over the next year, the benefits will start to show. It has already provided an amazing financial foundation for the nonprofit work.........

Creating Sustainable Peace - John Hewko, RI Gen. Secretary in Diplomatic Courier

Is our world more peaceful than ever before? The psychologist Stephen Pinker certainly thinks it is. With echoes of Francis Fukuyama’s pronouncement of the “end of history” and the triumph of liberal democracy in 1989, Pinker wrote in 2011 that “today may be the most peaceful era in our species’ history.”

He sees a long decline in violence since 1945, with the growth of commerce and institutions of governance such as policing and law courts, and the spread of literacy and education, all having a civilizing and pacifying effect on human relations.

But some new trends show that more countries are involved in intrastate conflicts, and in 2014 180,000 people were killed in internal conflicts, a number 3.5 times higher than in 2010. The UN estimates more than 60 million people are now either refugees or internally displaced due to conflict and violence, the highest number since the end of World War II.

So while macro trends may still be leading to an overall reduction in the number of violent incidences, these spikes in conflict seem to be urging us towards a different philosophical approach to understand the roots of both violence and sustainable peace.

This is why the Global Peace Index (GPI) is so valuable in answering the question of whether the foundations of peace can be fully understood only through the study of violence. For a NGO such as Rotary, which takes on some of the world’s great development challenges — from reducing poverty, to providing clean water and educating and empowering millions of people — we need to know that our work is having a sustainable impact.

And where sustainability is concerned, creating the “optimal environment for human potential to flourish”, a core component of the GPI’s “Positive Peace” framework, is a strong measure of success.

So how does this framework relate specifically to Rotary’s work?

AOF Graphic

For Rotary’s peace programs, as well as its activities in the other five Areas of Focus, the GPI and the Positive Peace research help us reframe the question of cause and effect in relation to human development. It does this by identifying key characteristics of, and key interventions that lead to, more peaceful countries. Instead of focusing on “negative peace”, which measures an absence of violence, we look at a more holistic definition of peace. This provides evidence for factors such as equitable distribution of resources and high levels of human capital as the cause (in a complex, interdependent way) of peaceful societies rather than the effect of a decline in violence.

Rotary’s work supports directly many of the conditions which are the “pillars of positive peace”, as well as mitigating and preventing violence and conflict. Specifically, in the Peace and Conflict Prevention/Resolution Area of Focus, Rotary does this by:

1) Providing grassroots training opportunities for community leaders to prevent and mediate conflict where they live;

2) Supporting a variety of community-based peace building programs, from youth leadership workshops to socio-economic and civic education initiatives in communities and regions affected by conflict;

3) Providing fellowship and scholarship opportunities for aspiring global leaders in the field.

Rotary is working directly with the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP) to help train the next generation of global peacemakers with the tools and framework provided by the GPI.

Through the Global Peace Index Ambassadors training, Rotary and IEP are working with peace fellow ambassadors to inform and educate Rotarians, not only on the GPI, but also on the concept of Positive Peace building and specific steps that local Rotary clubs can take to start peace-related projects.

So how does the GPI connect with Rotary’s other five Areas of Focus?

Rotary seeks to foster the conditions for Positive Peace by funding and implementing thousands of projects and programs around the world that support education, water and sanitation, maternal and child health, disease prevention and treatment, and community development.

Let’s look at two concrete examples of Rotary’s responses to today’s most pressing global challenges, such as the refugee crisis and access to clean water and sanitation.

Syria, once on the verge of meeting the Millennium Development Goal targets for education and health care, has now lost “six decades of development gains in five years of conflict” in the words of one observer.

If we don’t act now to build the conditions for sustainable peace, then the likelihood and impact of risk factors that undermine it, such as profound social instability, and failures of national governance will only increase...........

Rotary Peace Fellows Win Competition to Spread Peace

Twelve Rotary Peace Fellows are about to get even more guidance in their . They are not just but also a select group of Global Peace Index Ambassadors who were recognized for their innovative ideas on working with Rotary clubs in spreading the messages of peace.

Through the program, a collaboration between Rotary and the , over 100 former and current peace fellows spent two months receiving training on the methodology the institute uses to create the, the world’s leading tool for quantifying peace. Ambassadors learned about research behind the Positive Peace and Rotary’s increasing involvement in peace and conflict prevention and resolution.

For the "10 for the 10th" competition, which celebrated the tenth annual release of the index, ambassadors submitted creative ideas for communicating the findings of the report and working with clubs around the globe. The winners will be trained to give Global Peace Index presentations in 10 cities around the world and will receive up to $1,000 to conduct the events.

The  announced the winners at the Future of Peace Summit on 15 June in Washington, D.C. The 10 winning proposals were submitted by 12 current and former peace fellows:

  • Maria Aseneta (Chulalongkorn University, January 2015)
  • Eduardo da Costa (Duke University and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, 2010-12)
  • Phil Gittins (Chulalongkorn University, June 2012)
  • Umar Hayat (Chulalongkorn University, June 2015)
  • Manisha Javeri (Chulalongkorn University, June 2010)

What You Don’t Know About The Campaign To End Polio

When was the last time there was polio in Europe? If you guessed 2002, the year the region was certified polio-free, you were wrong. The last time polio affected a child in Europe was last summer. In 2015, two Ukrainian children were diagnosed with paralytic polio, and, given the way the disease manifests itself, that means many more were likely infected and didn’t show symptoms. At least one Western news outlet deemed the outbreak “crazy” – but the reality is that no place on earth is safe from polio until the disease is eradicated everywhere.

Ukraine had fully vaccinated only 50 percent of its children against polio, and low immunization rates are a recipe for an outbreak. In this case, a rare mutation in the weakened strain used in the oral polio vaccine was able to spread because so many children had not been vaccinated. To stop it from progressing, the country needed to administer 5 million to 6 million vaccines through an emergency program. But as recently as March, Ukraine’s ability to do so remained in question.

Finding the occasional case of polio outside Afghanistan and Pakistan, the only countries that have yet to eradicate it, is not unusual. In 2014, just before the World Cup brought travelers from all over the planet to Brazil, the country identified poliovirus in the sewage system at São Paulo’s Viracopos International Airport. Using genetic testing, officials traced its origin to Equatorial Guinea. Brazil’s regular vaccination efforts kept the disease from showing up beyond the airport doors.

Those are frustrating examples for the thousands of people around the world working to eradicate polio. The fight has come a long way, but it is far from over. And while many involved in the effort say we may detect the final naturally occurring case of polio this year, getting to that point – and ensuring that the disease remains gone – will continue to require money, hard work, and the support of Rotarians around the world.

FINDING POLIO

One of the most important aspects of the fight to eradicate polio is detecting where the disease is present. This continuous surveillance is complicated and costly. Ninety percent of people infected with the virus show no symptoms, and those who do usually have mild symptoms such as fever, fatigue, and headaches. Only one in every 200 cases of the illness results in paralysis, which means that for every child with signs of paralysis, several hundred are carrying the disease and may not show it.

But not every case of paralysis is caused by polio. Other viruses that can be responsible for the polio-like symptoms known as acute flaccid paralysis include Japanese encephalitis, West Nile, Guillain-Barré, and Zika. To determine if a patient has polio, doctors must collect a stool specimen and send it to a lab for testing.

To find the patients who don’t present symptoms or don’t make it to a clinic, Rotary and its partners in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) – the World Health Organization, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, UNICEF, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation – have set up environmental sampling in the areas that are most susceptible to the disease. Fifteen to 20 countries are still at high risk despite having eradicated the illness. Because the poliovirus is most easily detected, and most easily contracted, through stool, researchers take samples from sewage systems and, in places that don’t have sewer infrastructure, from rivers and open gutters.........

The Importance of Wearing the Rotary Pin - PRIP Sakuji Tanaka

Rotary-pin

I am a Japanese businessman, and I wear a suit almost every day. The Rotary pin is always on my lapel. It is there because I am proud to be a Rotarian. Anywhere I go, people will see the pin and know who I am. Other Rotarians will see it and know that I am a friend, and people who are not Rotarians will see it as well. I want to be sure that all of them also understand the meaning of this pin.

This is why I am asking all of you to wear your Rotary pin and to raise awareness of what the pin means. I believe having that pin on your lapel changes you. It makes you think more before you speak and before you act. It makes you remember, all the time, that you are a Rotarian – and that as Rotarians, we are here to help.

All of us should be ready to talk about Rotary. When someone asks you about that pin, you should be ready to answer them. What is Rotary? What does Rotary do? These are questions that each of us should always be prepared to answer.

We cannot go to prospective members and ask them to join Rotary only because we want more members. We have to show them that Rotary is a wonderful organization, and that they will be happier because they belong to a Rotary club.

When we ask people to join Rotary, we are doing this to help them as well. I think all of us are grateful to the person who asked us to join. I know that my life is much happier, and has been much more productive, because of Rotary. It is clear to me that the day I joined the Rotary Club of Yashio was a day when I took my first step down a different path in life – a path of greater connection, greater satisfaction, and a deeper sense of fulfillment and peace.

This is a feeling that I want to share with others. And I know that one way to do that is through bringing in new members. But we must also do it by raising awareness of Rotary and Rotary’s work, by focusing on our public image and wearing our Rotary pins every day.

- PRIP Sakuji Tanaka

What do you get when you give to The Rotary Foundation?

In April, I paid an emotional visit to the Rotary Club of Newcastle-under-Lyme that had hosted my Ambassadorial Scholarship more than 40 years ago while I attended Keele University in North Staffordshire, England.

As I shared my experiences with them, I reflected upon how much the experience had changed my life. I grew up in Astoria, Oregon, and the cultural differences between small town USA and Keele University were immense. I was delighted by the warmth of my welcome and at the opportunity to speak to 35 Rotary clubs, Round Table clubs (an association of young business professionals founded by a British Rotarian in the 1920s), and similar organizations during my year. It gave me the confidence to pursue a career as a diplomat.

After my scholarship year, I graduated from the University of Birmingham with a Master’s degree in West African history and economics. I signed up with the U.S. Foreign Service and spent the next 30 years traveling the world, representing my country in Rwanda, Great Britain, Haiti, France, Antigua, and Egypt. I also had several assignments at the U.S. State Department in Washington D.C., before retiring to the British Virgin Islands with my husband, Tony, a former Lt. Commander in the British Royal Navy. I am now heavily involved in the Rotary Club Sunrise of Road Town, British Virgin Islands.

Every dime, every cent, every dollar, every pound we give to The Rotary Foundation is put to good use.

As Rotary members, we are regularly asked to give to The Rotary Foundation. This may seem like a very big picture operation. However, that big picture is actually made up of thousands and thousands of individual pixels, representing the individual projects, scholarships, grants, etc., that the Foundation supports.

I was one of those pixels. My life was changed and directed by my year as an Ambassadorial Scholar. Going from small town American girl to worldly-wise Scholar to American diplomat with a 30 year career AND a wonderful English husband were all results of the journey Rotary set me upon. I can personally tell you that every dime, every cent, every dollar, every pound we give to the Foundation is put to good use.

The impact of those donations, given so long ago, are still felt strongly in my life. Your contributions to the Foundation resonate around the world, year in and year out. In my case, 43 years out!

Why surveillance is so important to polio eradication

In a small health clinic in Tharaka Nithi, Kenya, Amina Ismail pours over a register documenting all of the doctors’ appointments from recent months, a nurse by her side. She is checking every record for symptoms of polio – the sudden onset, floppy arms and legs that signify acute flaccid paralysis.

As they work, she checks that the nurse knows what the symptoms are, and that she knows what she has to do if a child with acute flaccid paralysis is brought to the clinic. This detailed surveillance for polio, working hand in hand with those who know their communities best of all, has been the linchpin of the work of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI).

Surveillance officers like Amina work and volunteer around the world with one aim: the eradication of the poliovirus. Networks of health workers, traditional healers, religious leaders, teachers and parents have helped us identify paralyzed children; and then by testing their stool samples in laboratories, we can find out if polio was the cause. This information has enabled us to hold vaccination campaigns to rapidly increase immunity in places where the virus is circulating, to protect children against paralysis, and ultimately remove any hiding place for the virus so that it dies out. Once we have successfully done this everywhere in the world, polio will be eradicated.

We have never been so close to our goal of a polio-free world. There are just two countries left where the wild poliovirus is still circulating – Afghanistan and Pakistan. This means that the partners of the GPEI along with country governments, donors, civil society, and parents are working harder than ever before to make sure we know exactly where polio is, so that we can respond quickly to stop every strain of the virus.

Keeping surveillance efforts going in all countries is a huge undertaking requiring skill, vigilance, and continued funding if we are to achieve our goal.

Surveillance is one of the most important jobs done to eradicate polio. And today, as fewer countries actually have cases to be found through acute flaccid paralysis surveillance, new and innovative approaches are being used to find viruses even before they cause symptoms.

Kano, Nigeria
It is five thirty in the morning in Kano in the north of Nigeria. As the sun comes up and people begin to wake and gather at market stalls, in traffic jams, and by small fires on street corners, two men stand by an open sewage system. The men put on protective coats and gloves and carefully lower a small bucket down to collect a small amount of the slow-moving water. They package it carefully, take off their gloves, carefully place it in a cool-box and the sample begins its journey to the polio laboratory.

By testing water in the environment for the poliovirus, alarm bells can be sounded ahead of time if children in any area could be at risk.

As Director of Polio Eradication for WHO, I depend on thousands of people, including committed Rotarians, to vaccinate children, research new ways to deliver these vaccines, to plan and advocate, and to mobilize essential resources. Tracing every last poliovirus through surveillance is a crucial part of these efforts, showing us the symptoms so that we can prevent disease in the first place.

Keeping surveillance efforts going in all countries is a huge undertaking requiring skill, vigilance, and continued funding if we are to achieve our goal. And what a monumental achievement that will be – all future generations, free from the threat of polio.

Rotarian Interview: Deirdre Maloney on Losing Balance to Find Bliss

Deirdre Maloney is in demand for her expertise in motivation and leadership. As the president of her own company, Momentum LLC, the author of three books, and a columnist for the Huffington Post, Maloney employs a personal brand that she calls “mild audacity,” to challenge conventional assumptions and definitions of success. She joined the Rotary Club of San Diego in 2010 after being invited to a meeting by a Rotarian who read an op-ed column that she wrote in the local newspaper.

THE ROTARIAN: In your latest book, Bogus Balance: Your Journey to Real Work/Life Bliss, you make the case that work/life balance is not achievable but bliss is. Why is bliss easier to achieve than balance?

MALONEY: For me growing up, the message was, Get that career! Have that family! Take advantage of all your opportunities! I burned out trying to do that. I started a company and wrote a book and tried to do things on the side. By trying to have it all and do everything really well, I wound up doing things pretty poorly. My argument is: You can’t have it all, but you can have your all. That means you need to make choices. Sometimes it isn’t choosing between doing something we want to do and don’t want to do. Sometimes the choice is between something we want to do a lot and something we want to do but not as much.

TR: In your book Tough Truths, you discuss 10 leadership lessons that “we don’t talk about.” What is most important to know about leadership?

MALONEY: Two things: Relationships are everything, and politics are everywhere. If you want to be a great leader, you need to be able to form really strong relationships. And they have to be authentic relationships. You can’t let your own self-worth go up and down as your successes go up and down. When you create change and hold people accountable, you’re not always going to be popular. It’s valuable to have your own group of people outside of your work who think you’re great.

TR: Is there a personal leadership lesson that helped you find bliss?

MALONEY: I think for me it was that I don’t always have all the answers and I’m going to make mistakes. But fear of moving forward is not an option. If I make mistakes, I still can figure it out.

TR: Drawing upon your expertise, what advice do you have for Rotary as an organization?

MALONEY: To keep Rotary thriving, we need to focus on membership as a twofold thing. Bringing in new members is terrific. But the other piece is retention. We know the risk for this organization is that incoming generations may not see the value in one static community that they see every week. We need to convince people to come and make that experience a net positive by showing the benefits: good programs and being able to network.

TR: You describe your personal brand as “mild audacity.” Please explain.

MALONEY: I try to be a little bit of a provocateur. I don’t want to be brazen. But I don’t want to conform. I say the things other people don’t say … but I say it nicely.
