Soroptimists are men and women of all ages, cultures, and ethnic groups. Members represent a wide array of professions, including business owners and chief executive officers, civil servants, doctors, educators, and more. Soroptimists are leaders in their communities who believe that by joining with others, they can make the world a better place. Membership provides a number of material and intangible benefits for those wishing to use their time and talents in service to others.
