Partnerships, Projects & Resources
Zonta International is proud to partner with organizations and coalitions who share Zonta International’s vision of a world in which women’s rights are recognized as human rights and every woman is able to achieve her full potential. By partnering with like-minded organizations, Zonta International extends its reach and impact to empower more women and girls around the world to realize their rights.
HOW TO UTILIZE THIS SITE
The District 4 UN site has been designed so that all of the information can be used easily by clubs to introduce or upgrade your members’ understanding of Zonta & the United Nations. This is an integral part of who we are.
You can use the information in the different modules to share individual videos or PowerPoint presentations at one or more meetings, as a small part of your Agenda or you can prepare a larger presentation for United Nations Day in October.
The D4 UN committee is available to meet with your clubs or to give guidance should you need it.
Touring the United Nations in New York City.
We have been in touch with the League of Women Voters of New York to determine if we will be able to offer a UN tour later this year. The League has decided to wait another year before arranging a tour.
In the meantime, you can take a virtual tour – individually or as a group – by using https://www.un.org/en/visit/virtual-tours
