The Zonta e-Club of Queensland was chartered in 2019 and caters for those who live in locations where there are currently no Zonta Clubs or where members are unable to attend a regular Zonta meeting because of work or personal issues but who wish to be a member of Zonta International and contribute to the work of Zonta. We have members throughout all regions of Queensland and also some interstate members. We meet on-line on a monthly basis, second Wednesday of each month (February to December) from 6.00pm-7.00pm
Members communicate with each other via e-mail or teleconference and are encouraged to attend Zonta Conferences and meetings where possible . When opportunities arise, we proactively work with other Zonta Clubs to support Zonta’s mission of ‘Empowering Women Through Service and Advocacy’.
Some of our activities include:
- Purchase of white goods donated to Murilla Community Centre, Miles, to support regional and rural women relocating due to impacts of domestic violence
- Christmas hampers for mothers and children donated to Kup of Kindness Chinchilla;
- Support of Zonta Says No and 16 Days of Activism campaigns and activities through collaborating with the Zonta Club of Toowoomba and Toowoomba Garden City Club;
- Partnership with Education Queensland and Origin Energy to support Women in STEM event during National Sciences Week to promote studies and careers for women in STEM and in non traditional roles in industry; Over 30 schools across rural and regional Queensland have been involved with this annual event over the past 3 years;
- STEM scholarships for Year 12 female secondary school students living in Southwest country and remote areas of Queensland . Inaugural scholarships commenced in 2022, with Chloe Honnery and Briony Isles from Chinchilla State High School being the successful recipients; and
- Re-establishment of the Golden Z Club at the Nathan campus Griffith University, Gold Coast
