Who We Are and What We Do

sia-logo- investing in dreams

Soroptimist means “best for women” and that’s what the organization strives to achieve. Soroptimists are women at their best, working to help other women to be their best.

Throughout history and still to this day, women throughout the world face obstacles solely because of their gender. They disproportionately suffer from poverty and discrimination. It’s for this reason that Soroptimist, an organization of and by women, chooses to focus on the special challenges facing women and girls.

Soroptimists in the Sierra Pacific Region belong to local clubs ranging from San Francisco to Taft and from Los Banos to Mariposa. In addition to providing women and girls with access to an education, these clubs and our members also participate in the global organization-wide programs.

Our Vision: Women and girls have the resources and opportunities to reach their full potential and live their dreams. 

Our Mission: Soroptimist is a global volunteer organization that provides women and girls with access to the education and training they need to achieve economic empowerment.
