Rotary After Work: Sylvia Whitlock, the Woman who Changed Rotary


Served as the first woman club president, following federal lawsuit requiring female membership in Rotary and many other organizations. 

Dr. Sylvia Whitlock helped establish an AIDS clinic in Jamaica, supported an orphanage in Mexico and sank wells in Nigeria. She will speak of her love of The Rotary Foundation including her participation in Rotary’s polio eradication efforts through volunteering on National Immunization Days and supporting Rotary grants around the world. During her year as district governor she raised money through The Rotary Foundation to support PACE Universal’s Piyali Learning Center outside of Kolkata, India. PACE is committed to ending trafficking and uplifting communities through the education of girls and women living in extreme poverty. Today she serves as an honorary board member of PACE Universal and leads teacher trainings in Piyali.

Sylvia is a Cum Laude graduate of Claremont Graduate University – Ph.D. in the field of Education and is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with MFT degree from Azusa Pacific University. As a retired California Public School Principal, a retired member of the State of California Commission on Credentialing, a Teacher Training Supervisor and a retired Los Angeles County social worker Sylvia has dedicated her life to education and social justice. Some of her honors include the NAACP Woman of the Year, Rotary Foundation District Service Award and Global Citizen Award from United Nations.
