Soroptimism offers women a non party-political forum in which to discuss local, national or international issues, exchange ideas, meet new people and contribute to society. Meetings may involve a speaker or a meal, but are always held in a stimulating and friendly environment.

At club level:

    • provides social contact and friendship
    • creates and promotes professional networks
    • promotes international travel and friendship
    • develops leadership skills
    • enhances confidence and self esteem
    • identifies projects and opportunities
    • IS FUN

Soroptimism challenges thinking on current social topics, widens understanding of local, national and international issues and provides a platform from which to lobby and influence decision making. To this end clubs often choose an annual project for ..lobbying ..fundraising..action!

Soroptimist International is an organisation for women who wish to work to transform the lives of women and girls worldwide.
An Expression of Interest Form is available from who will put you in touch with your nearest Club. Alternatively, If you would like more information about Soroptimist International in South East England or are interested in membership, please use the contact form on this website

Membership Month May 2016

SI Maidstone had a stand at County Hall in Maidstone. KCC employs lots of staff in its office at Maidstone so it was an ideal opportunity to see lots of women and tell them about the work and aims, fun and friendship of joining us. Members of the SI Maidstone popped in at lunch time to talk to employees as they were entering and leaving the building. Staff working in Maidstone come from all over the county so we hope some other clubs may also get some new members.
