Zonta is an international service organization focused on advancing the political, economic, social and educational status of women worldwide. Zontians work throughout the world to address the needs of women at all socio-economic levels. These needs include basic health, education, welfare and human rights.
At another level, involvement in Zonta enhances women’s skills to advance in business and the professions as well as enriches their personal lives. There are also opportunities to socialize and network nationally and internationally with business and professional women working in many different fields.
We currently have about 20 active members in the Zonta Club of Berkeley/North Bay, who are professionals and managers in a variety of businesses. Some of our members are prominent in government and the non-profit sector. While the average Zonta member is a mid-career professional, new members are welcome at any stage in their careers, so long as they are actively engaged at least 20 hours a week in their profession.
