INTERNATIONAL CONVENTION


The home page of the web site has a new tag line "Build a Better World for Women and Girls".  The new  tagline was  introduced by new Zonta International President Ute Scholz  at the recent Convention in Hamburg.  The Convention held every two years is an opportunity for Zontians worldwide to get together and set the direction of the organisation for the next biennium.  In the International Projections section you will find an updated list of all the international project. 

Building a Better World for Women and Girls doesn't just happen so what are  Zontians going to do?

 

Architects cannot build without their blueprints; the same goes for our Zonta members! Start paving the road to a better world for women and girls by reading the 2022-2024 Biennial Goals. The biennial goals remain aligned with Zonta's mission and vision and are centered under five pillars:

1. Stand Out for Gender Equity. Zonta International envisions a world in which women’s rights are recognized as human rights; and, as a result, advocacy and action have moved to the forefront of much of what we do.

2. Represent Global Citizenship Zontians have always reflected the principles of global citizenship as they have worked for the advancement of understanding, goodwill and peace through a world fellowship of clubs and individuals with the charge to serve their communities, their nations and the world.

3. Develop Future Leaders Zonta International, clubs and individual members strive to ensure every woman has access to education and resources and that more women are represented in decision-making positions. 4. Celebrate Ourselves Zontians are the heart and hands of our organization. Without members we are nothing.

5. Position Zonta International for the Future In spite of rapid societal shifts, advancing technology, a global pandemic, economic uncertainties, and unprecedented natural disasters, Zonta stands strong as it prepares to enter the next two years; however, Zonta's long-range sustainability is not guaranteed if thoughtful and insightful action is not taken.
