Zonta International is a leading global organization of professionals empowering women worldwide through service and advocacy.
The Zonta Club of Birmingham was chartered in 1940 and is part of the 11th District covering the US-Southeast (see map below) and includes 45 regional clubs.
The Birmingham club is made up of women leaders at the top of their profession from a variety of industries that are committed to helping women in the local community as well as supporting the Zonta International mission.
There are many women from countries around the world that face poverty, lack of education or even access to basic health care on a daily basis. In addition, many are exploited or live in communities where women are considered second-class citizens.
