Zonta District 9 San Jose Conference 2015

Welcome to Zonta International District 9.

 

As we celebrate our centennial anniversary our goal remains the same - to achieve equality of women and men world-wide.

 

During the 2018-2020 biennium, District 9 leaders and members will focus on “Honoring the Past – Empowering the Present – Shaping the Future”. This is a special time; as we bridge Zonta International from her first century to the next, we will enable young women to assume leadership roles and levels of responsibility that will move the local and international communities forward. The goal to achieve equality of women and men is as relevant today as it was 100 years ago. 

Together, we will make Zonta strong for tomorrow.

 

If you are passionate about taking a stand for equality, advocating for sustainable change and achieving global impact through local action, then we invite you to contact the club nearest you to join us in our efforts to develop future agents of change toward equality.
