Soroptimist International is a global volunteer organization of business and professional women who provide volunteer service to their communities. The organization was founded in 1921 by a group of 80 women in Alameda County, California. They chose their name from two Latin words meaning “best for women.”
Our mission: “Improving 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, lack of adequate child care, sexual harassment, inequities in the workplace, and other challenges unique to today’s women.
