Organization empowering women with tools to succeed in new employment

Created: March 11, 2021 04:07 PM

Soroptimist is a name that may be hard to pronounce, but there's nothing complicated about the work the women's group does on behalf of women.

One of their signature events is a workshop to provide employment tools for victims of domestic violence.

They're planning a huge golf tournament this year to raise money, even though the pandemic has presented some challenges.

Native daughter and golf legend Dottie Pepper is the honorary chairperson.

Statistics are that a million women have lost their jobs because of the pandemic and many women have also been displaced. So the work the Soroptimists are doing could change women's lives.

Learn more about Soroptimist and the fundraiser by watching the video of Elaine Houston's story.
