Since we are not able to meet in person due to COVID-19 state restrictions, we will be having our program planning meetings online via zoom meeting. All members are encouraged to attend and share any ideas or suggestions on our 2020-2021 programming year. We are looking to have 4 programs due to the COVID-19 restrictions and lower turnout at events over the past 5 years. We will discuss the possibility of online meetings as well as in-person meetings.
If you are not able to attend, please email with any program ideas, themes, or suggestions.
Also, we will discuss earning the remaining 3 stars for the branch with the National 5 Star program – Public Policy and Research, branch strategic plan, and branch succession plan.
Please RSVP to Ruth Holst email@example.com by June 24 and she will forward you the ZOOM meeting link.
Thank you –
Helen Elkiss and Barbara Harris
VP programming co-chairs
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.
Start your free, online salary negotiation workshop.
You deserve a raise. This free online course will give you the tools you need to successfully negotiate and close the pay gap for women everywhere. Register today!
