Welcome!

Soroptimist is a global volunteer organization working to improve the lives of women and girls through programs leading to social and economic empowerment. Soroptimist membership connects women to each other, to their local communities and to the world community. We focus on issues such as domestic violence, poverty, sexual harassment, inequities in the workplace, and other challenges unique to today’s women.

We’ve launched the first Santa Cruz County Women’s Business Directory and want YOU to be a part of it. If you own or run a business in SC County, go to our directory page to submit a listing and be included…it’s FREE!
