Founded in 1919, Zonta International is a global organization of executives and professionals working together to advance the status of women worldwide through service and advocacy. With more than 30,000 members belonging to more than 1,200 Zonta Clubs in 63 countries and geographic areas, Zonta International is divided into 32 Districts of which we are District 11.
Zonta takes its name from the Lakota Sioux Indian word meaning "honest and trustworthy". Zonta has a long and well respected history of being a worldwide service organization of executives in business and the professions working together to advance the status of women. One of the first service organizations to understand women's unique role in achieving world peace, Zonta International continues to promote justice and universal respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms.
The clubs of District 11 select, fund and participate in community projects fundamental to promoting women's economic self-sufficiency, political equality, access to education and health care and the elimination of violence against women.
