WHY BECOME A ZONTIAN?
We are a global service organization creating sustainable change
Zonta International has been bringing professional women and men around the world together for the common mission of empowering women since 1919. Do you have the drive to make a difference instead of just waiting for change? Zonta International has partners in more than 60 other countries worldwide. Will you join them? Will you change the world for women and girls?
We work locally, impact globally
Zonta International gives club members local opportunities to support their communities while also focusing on larger international projects. What does Zonta Club of Houston do? We support several local agencies that work to advance the status of women. We also provide local scholarships to young women in high school, university and at the post-graduate level. Please see the What We Do tab on this website.
Globally, Zonta International focuses on projects that empower women and bring about sustainable change to ensure that each generation is stronger than the last. Along with Zonta International and its nearly 1,200 Zonta clubs, UN Women, UNICEF, UNFPA and hundreds of other local organizations around the globe continually advocate to change laws, harmful cultural norms, and overall attitudes that have hindered gender equality and human rights for all.
We are investing in the future of women through education
Our mission and our members are rooted in the belief that true change lies in education. To support women’s education, Zonta International offers 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.
