INDIANA DeMOLAY DIVERSITY
As an organization made
up of members and volunteers, the Order of DeMolay in Indiana not only accepts, but desires and expects diversity in our members
and adult leaders. Members of Indiana DeMolay are encouraged to welcome and involve friends who share like interests as well
as those who differ in their backgrounds. With Chapters throughout the State of Indiana, we have members from different ethnic,
religious, social and economic backgrounds. The ability to work with these differences allows us to develop as the leaders
of tomorrow. Providing a safe, educational, and meaningful experience is the goal of Indiana DeMolay and we value all of our
members and adult leaders who allow us to grow and develop.
INDIANA DeMOLAY ANTI-DISCRIMINATION
DeMolay does not express
or imply discrimination against its applicants because of their race, creed, color, disability or economic status. Discrimination
by any Chapter, Advisory body, Advisor or member of the Order of DeMolay in Indiana will not be tolerated. No Masonic
body that sponsors a Chapter of the Order of DeMolay in Indiana would condone such discrimination.

determined to have been influenced by said discriminatory judgements will be declared null and void, and final election or
rejection will rest within the authority of the Executive Officer of the Order of DeMolay in Indiana as provided for in Article
6 of the Rules and Regulations of DeMolay International.
