Zonta International has been bringing professional women and men around the world together for the common mission of empowering women since 1919. Whether you join for professional advancement, personal mission, or social reasons, you will help create a better world with Zonta.
Zonta International gives club members local opportunities to support their communities while also focusing on larger international projects. Partnering with agencies of the United Nations, Zonta International focuses on projects that empower women and bring about sustainable change to ensure that each generation is stronger than the last.
Our mission and our members are rooted in the belief that true change lies in education. To support women’s education, we offer three annual scholarship and award programs to women in business, public affairs, and aerospace related sciences and engineering. These programs have provided more than US$10.5 million since their inception and continue to provide more than US$530,000 each year to support women in traditionally male-dominated fields.
However, Zonta knows that money is not the solution for all problems. Through its long-standing partnerships with UN Women, UNICEF, UNFPA and hundreds of other local organizations around the globe, Zonta International and its nearly 1,200 Zonta clubs continually advocate to change laws, harmful cultural norms, and overall attitudes that have hindered gender equality and human rights for all.
