Women and girls face additional obstacles and discrimination solely because of their gender. As an organization of business and professional women we feel uniquely qualified to help women and girls live their dreams. The goal of every club is to improve the quality of living for women and girls
Why We Stand Out
Soroptimist gives cash awards to outstanding female students to help with their continuing education and increase their self esteem by acknowledging their accomplishments. It begins with awards at the local level and then onto the regional, national and international levels. These projects are funded by the hundreds of local clubs. Our soroptimist mission is to improve the lives of women and girls while building and maintaining meaningful relationships with Soroptimist members.
Soroptimist is a global volunteer organization that provides women and girls with access to the education and training they need to achieve economic empowerment. In order to accomplish this goal, the organization has local, region, national and international programs. Our signature program is Live Your Dream.

Oxnard Performing Arts and Convention Center
The Courtyard Fountain at the Oxnard Performing Arts Center may not have water in it anymore but it is representative of water in its new life as a succulent planter.
The beautiful creation is by Heritage Succulents. The Soroptimist International of Oxnard was the main sponsor of the project. Other garden sponsors include Agromin, Green Thumb, Lowe’s, Home Depot and American Builders Supply. Click here to learn more
