The Soroptimist Making a Difference for Women Award recognizes women who have worked to improve the lives of women and girls through their professional or volunteer work. Each year, clubs honor women around the world with this award and donate more than $90,000 to support their important work.
The SIA Board has decided it’s time to give this great program a new name. “Making a Difference for Women” is a phrase used by many organizations for programs and awards, and therefore does not succeed in setting Soroptimist or the award apart. It is also a long and rather cumbersome name. Soroptimist has asked clubs and members for their suggestions for a new name, and thanks to the many members who responded.
There is an online poll to narrow down the two choices. Soroptimist members, check your email to find out more information about how you can vote!
