Jacqueline Abbott-Deane: "Our goal is to be able to raise awareness for all of our District 29 members about Zonta’s involvement in CSW and how that links to our local Zonta Clubs.  We hope to stimulate ideas for how to make this come alive at a local level.  This year’s CSW theme is Women’s Economic Empowerment in the Changing World of Work."
