Mission and Vision
Zonta International is a leading global organization of professionals empowering women worldwide through service and advocacy.
Zonta International envisions a world in which women's rights are recognized as human rights and every woman is able to achieve her full potential.
In such a world, women have access to all resources and are represented in decision making positions on an equal basis with men.
In such a world, no woman lives in fear of violence.
Zonta International is a worldwide service organization of executives in business and the professions working together to advance the status of women worldwide.

Founded in 1919 in Buffalo, New York, USA, Zonta means “honest and trustworthy.”
Throughout Zonta International’s history, improving the status of women politically, legally, professionally, and in all other facets of life has been, and still is after almost a century, the motivating force.
Zonta International and Zonta Club programs are making this happen, laying the groundwork for women to achieve not just their personal goals but to improve conditions for women worldwide.
