Encouraging and Uplifting Women

Founded on October 3, 1921, Soroptimist International is the world’s largest service organization for business and professional women working to improve the lives of women and girls in local communities throughout the world. Beginning with only 80 working women, the international organization has grown to about 95,000 members in 120 countries. These members contribute time and financial support to community‐based and international projects that benefit women and girls.

The Women Making a Difference Award has been developed by Soroptimist International of Oxnard to honor women who, through their professional and/or personal efforts, improve lives and encourage women and girls in the greater Oxnard Community.
