Zonta International is led by four democratically-elected Officers and seven democratically-elected International Directors who make up the Zonta International Board. It is the role of the Zonta International Board to determine policy and provide general oversight of Zonta International; the role of Zonta International Headquarters staff is to implement that policy. The Zonta International Board is supported by International Committees.
For administrative purposes, Zonta International is divided into 31 districts and one region worldwide. Districts establish areas within their districts to implement administrative functions. Each area is comprised of clubs that pursue Zonta's mission and goals through service and advocacy.
