Klausman Women in Business Scholarship is awarded annually to women pursuing undergraduate or master’s degrees in business management.
The Zonta Club of Columbia works in partnership with other advocacy organizations, law enforcement and victims’ rights groups to push for legislation to address the problems of human trafficking. Club members serve on various task forces, present testimony to local and state government committees and provide services (as requested) for victims of human trafficking.
