Who We Are
Service. Advocacy. Awareness.
The Zonta Club of the Santa Clarita Valley brings these three elements of our international mission to life in ways that directly serve our community.
Our members are leaders in our local community and within the Zonta International community. Many of the members of our local club hold leadership positions in a number of community-based organizations in the SCV, are present and past public office holders, own businesses, and sit on local school governing boards. Within Zonta International, our local members have served at all levels of our Area, District and International community. Dianne Curtis was Zonta International President from 2010 to 2012.
Currently, Sharon Langenbeck (pictured, right) serves as Zonta International President, 2020-2022.
Envisions a world in which women's rights are recognized as human rights and every woman is able to achieve her full potential.
In such a world, women have access to all resources and are represented in decision making positions on an equal basis with men.
In such a world, no woman lives in fear of violence.
Zonta International’s story does not end here. Today, Zonta International is a global organization of nearly 29,000 members in 1,100 Zonta clubs in 61 countries.
