50 Women of Achievement Recognised by Zonta New Zealand

50 Women of Achievement Recognised by Zonta New Zealand

New Zealand is full of selfless, courageous women. In this year’s 50th Anniversary of Zonta Clubs in New Zealand, we give special recognition to fifty of these women - “Women of Achievement”- women who have worked hard to focus their passion, drive and valued time into pursuing a better place for us to live.

They were selected by a judging panel of accomplished women, none of whom are Zontians, for their perseverance and courage in the face of some of the most serious issues facing women today.

“These Awards are a fantastic opportunity to recognise the inspirational women in our lives and to celebrate their contribution to making a difference to the lives of women and girls”, says Dr Janette Irvine, Governor of Zonta New Zealand.
