Would you like to join a very friendly bunch of women who not only do a lot of work in the community but have fun doing it? Read on… Times have changed since our club was created in 1971, but there is still a huge need for our work, which is why we are happy when like minded women join us. We are part of a worldwide organisation, called Zonta International (ZI), which celebrated its 100-year anniversary in 2019. ZI is a leading global organisation of professionals working together to make a better world for women and girls through ZI’s vision of a world in which:

  • Women’s rights are recognised as human rights and every woman is able to achieve her full potential.
  • Women have access to all resources and are represented in decision-making positions on an equal basis with men..
  • No woman lives in fear of violence.

As a member you find great satisfaction in meaningful service and advocacy, inspiring meetings and fellowship. You also have the opportunity to step up into leadership roles and to gain knowledge of how to work with a group of people to make change.

If you join Zonta Club of Brisbane you become part of a global community through Zonta International Home, a statewide community through Zonta International District 22 and a local community through the club. Zonta Club of Brisbane is a not-for-profit organisation. It is the oldest Zonta Club in Brisbane, formed in 1971, and has a rich history and bright future.
