Zonta Club of Birmingham

Zonta Club of Birmingham

Zonta is an international organization of executives and professionals, founded in 1919, with the goal of advancing the status of women worldwide through service and advocacy. We seek to promote women’s political equality, economic self-sufficiency, access to education and healthcare, and freedom from violence. See for more information. There are more than 1,200 Zonta clubs in 64 countries with more than 30,000 members working to improve the lives of women around the world. The name “Zonta” comes from the Lakota Sioux Indian word meaning “honest and trustworthy.” Zonta clubs are non-partisan and non-sectarian.

Zonta Birmingham was chartered in 1940 and is part of the 11th district which includes over 45 clubs and over 1,000 executive and professional women. Our objectives are to:

  • Improve the status of women locally and worldwide
  • Promote justice and respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms
  • Advance understanding through fellowship
  • Support each other in service to our communities and the world

Zonta Birmingham meets the first Thursday of each month at noon at the Downtown YWCA. Executive and professional women from the Birmingham area with an interest in our objectives are warmly invited to visit a meeting.
