Build a better World for Women and Girls
Our vision is powerful ...
Zonta International is a leading global organization of people dedicated to empowerment, service and advocacy. We envision a world where women’s rights are recognized as human rights and where every woman can reach her full potential. We stand for a world where women have access to all resources and are fairly represented in decision-making positions. We stand for a world where no woman lives in fear of violence.
... our mission is clear
Zonta International is actively dedicated to change by giving women a voice worldwide. We do this through service and advocacy, both locally and internationally. Beyond that, our clubs celebrate young girls and young women with scholarships and awards such as the Young Women in Public Affairs Award, the Jane M. Klausman Scholarship, and the Amelia Earhart Fellowship.
We act in line with Zonta International President Sharon Langenbeck’s motto for 2020-2022: “Transitions, Changes & New Opportunities.”

Newsletter July 2022 from our Refugee Aid Coordinator Ukraine
The war in Ukraine continues. There is still no solution in sight that would guarantee the Ukrainians' right to self-determination over their country. Ukrainians continue to fight and resist the invaders. Without peace, our help is needed everywhere. Our Ukrainian members were overwhelmed by the friendship and helpfulness of the Zontians at the convention in Hamburg.
