HELPING WOMEN AND GIRLS
LIVE THEIR DREAMS
Soroptimist was formed in 1921 in Oakland, California. Our name, loosely translated from the Latin, means best for women. Today, we have about 160,000 members and supporters in 21 countries and territories. We are one of four federations that make up Soroptimist International, which has clubs in more than 120 countries throughout the world.
HOW WE EMPOWER WOMEN AND GIRLS
We believe the best way to improve the lives of women and girls is to improve their access to educational and professional training.
