Holiday Social and Business Meeting – December 7
Please join President Ruth Holst in the party room at her condo building at 645 N. Kingsbury Street, Chicago 60654 on Saturday, December 7th from 11:30 am to 2:00 pm for lunch, networking, and discussion about the future of the Chicago Branch. A key topic on the agenda will be AAUW’s new Five Star National Recognition Program, envisioned as a way for branches to align their work with the AAUW Strategic Plan and other initiatives that foster the organizational mission of advancing gender equity for women and girls. Ruth will arrange for food from a favorite local restaurant, Club Lago, and participants will be asked to contribute $25 to help offset the cost of the catering. Please RSVP to Ruth at email@example.com or text to 224-610-9718 by December 4. Attendees can pay at the door by check or cash.
Closing the Pay Gap with AAUW
At the current rate, the gender pay gap will not close until 2106. In 2018, AAUW announced our bold pledge to train 10 million women in salary negotiation by 2022. We will not wait for policies and employer culture alone to determine when we reach parity. We are working to empower women nation-wide with skills to effectively negotiate their salary and benefits and become agents of change in their communities.
Attend our online or in person AAUW Start Smart and AAUW Work Smart workshops. We are fighting to close the pay gap, one workshop at a time. Bring an AAUW salary negotiation training to your community, or share our programs and become and advocate for equal pay.
