The American Association of University Women (AAUW), officially founded in 1881, is a non-profit organization that advances equity for women and girls through: scholarships for higher education, advocacy, education, and research. Our Tucson Branch has 90 Years of history giving back and advocating as we work to #closethegap.
By focusing on:
– K – 12 Educators in order to improve the quality of education in Arizona
– Education and Training through college scholarships at Pima and the University of Arizona.
– Economic Security for women and girls through a series of Start Smart workshops, designed to empower women with skills and confidence to negotiate starting salaries, and benefits
– Leadership Skills through a Running and Winning Program, which encourages high school juniors and seniors to discover their leadership abilities and consider running for public office.
We welcome everyone into our organization who holds an associate or higher degree from a regionally accredited college or university, without regard to gender, race, age, sexual orientation, national origin, disability or religious persuasion.
