Ute Scholz President-Elect
Zonta Club of Verden, Germany, District 27

As member of the Zonta International and Zonta Foundation for Women Board since 2016 and a Zontian for 27 years, Ute has learned the details surrounding the cooperation with Zonta’s partners worldwide and how to evaluate goals, especially when she visited the Let Us Learn Madagascar project in 2019. Thanks to her more than 20 years of executive business experience, she knows how to develop strategies to raise money and to find ways to implement special goals. To Ute, Zonta is widely recognized as a human rights organization, focusing on equal rights for women and girls. It is an organization whose goals are supported by women and men alike because it becomes more and more evident that gender equality will benefit the global community. She feels well-educated women, who can develop their full potential, are the backbone of every society.
