Zonta District 20 hosts virtual livestream with a record-breaking number of attendees

To celebrate International Women’s Day, Zonta District 20, Finland and Estonia, organized a livestream event.

Despite the difficulties from the COVID-19 pandemic, the district wanted to bring members together virtually to maintain the Zonta spirit. Some of the club’s other goals for the event were to engage new members, educate members on best practices for online meetings and to make the event warm and approachable.

The session was two hours long and featured guest speakers, such as Monika Fagerholm, internationally renowed Finnish author, Arja Uusitalo, medical specialist and researcher and Government Minister for Equality, Thomas Blomqvist.

The district’s virtual livestream reached more than 500 people, which is more than any district conference so far. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive, making the event a huge success.
