Each year on International Women’s Day, Zonta Clubs around the world recognize individuals who have made significant contributions in the efforts to advance the status of women. This year, the focus is on prevention of domestic violence and support of survivors.

“I’m honored to receive this award,” Lambert, who represents Northeast King County and Issaquah, said in a statement. “My work to protect victims of domestic violence and human trafficking is motivated by a deeply held belief that all women deserve to be treated with dignity and respect.”

The Zonta Club of East King County is a chapter of Zonta International, a service organization of executives in business and the professions working together to advance the status of women worldwide.
