Since 1990, the American Association of University Women-Illinois, Inc. has sponsored an Initiative for Educational Equity. The Initiative is charged with raising awareness throughout Illinois regarding gender inequalities, especially those in education, by using our National AAUW Research. The Gender Equity Fund initiates projects and activities to support gender fair community awareness, creates an environment for public dialog about equity concerns, empowers women and girls to extend equity fairness projects into the community, increases public awareness of effective strategies and activities to promote equitable access, resources and outcomes to all youth and builds a network of community resources to support gender fair programs.
