Soroptimist International 100th Birthday

JOIN THE GLOBAL CELEBRATION

This October Soroptimist International is celebrating its 100th birthday!  That’s a century of Soroptimists transforming the lives of women and girls around the world - and that is definitely something worth celebrating! 

Our year of festivities that have been observed in each Federation will culminate with all members coming together for Soroptimist’s 100th birthday party on October 1 - 3, 2021 (based on time zone).  Although we wish we could meet in person, pandemic realities do not allow us to do so.  But we don’t want to miss the opportunity for members to come together, so we’ll gather virtually to honor our 100 years as a global voice for women, while also creating unforgettable, exciting new memories as we begin the journey forward into our brilliant future.

This is your chance to connect with Soroptimists from around the world, be inspired by our keynote speaker, and gain new insights from discussions among members in breakout sessions.

Registration for the celebration is now open, and we encourage you to sign up as soon as possible to receive the greatest savings!

WELCOME

​​Welcome to Soroptimist International of Indianapolis Metro! The organization is a worldwide sisterhood of professional women volunteering to improve the lives of women and girls in their local communities, nationally, and throughout the world. 

Soroptimist is a name coined from two latin words, "soror" meaning sister and "optima" meaning the best. Hence the translation is  "The Best for Women."

SOROPTIMIST PLEDGE

​I pledge allegiance to Soroptimist and to the ideals for which it stands: the Sincerity of Friendship, the Joy of Acheivement, the Dignity of Service, the Integrity of Profession, the Love of Country. I will put forth my greatest effort to promote, uphold, and defend these ideals for a larger fellowship in home, in society, in business, for country and for God.

Suzy

Soroptimist

We decided to borrow a children's project idea of "Flat Stanley" and create "Soroptimist Suzy."  If you have not heard of "Flat Stanley", as a school assignment kids are asked to draw their own version of the character,  get pictures of Stanley doing activities, traveling, etc. and then write a story about him. We thought it might be fun to create our own character but to do it with the premise of telling the Soroptimist story of women helping women and living their dreams. The basic principle of the project is to bring more awareness about our organization through our travels and interactions with others in our community.

Be on the look out to see Soroptimist Suzy participating at our latest events!
