“District 23 has a Futurist.  What’s that?

In recent months, District 23 Zontians have been faced with some huge challenges. Our clubs have had to find new ways to operate through hellish bushfires and the Covid-19 pandemic. It has not been easy – but we did it. Read more about Preparing for the Future.

COVID-19 Pandemic

Zonta is closely monitoring the COVID -19 pandemic and its impact on Zonta operations throughout District 23 and its Clubs. Clubs are finding alternative ways to keep in touch through the use of virtual meetings such as Zoom and providing regular project information using social media, largely Facebook and Twitter. The virtual meetings provide a way to actively engage with their current and new members.

Some service projects and advocacy with a particular emphasis on womens’ empowerment and the elimination of violence against women are still being undertaken. Further reference to this website and the Zonta International website continues to provide information about Zonta’s role in empowering women through service advocacy.

Thanks for your support!

From Executive Director, thanking us for our support during this first six months as the new White Ribbon Australia. Read the full letter here.
