My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for AAUW, Washington, DC, USA
I have been a member of AAUW since the mid-70s. I joined because I had suffered employment discrimination and wanted to be part of an organization that was working hard -- and effectively -- to make significant inroads. One of the reasons I've maintained my membership all these years is because AAUW is always ready and able to take a leadership role to meet the challenges women continually face. In addition, AAUW has provided a place for me to develop leadership skills. Even when I fell flat on my face, another member was there to tell me how gracefully I took that fall. I am grateful for the opportunity to have served AAUW in many leadership roles in four different states.

Worthwhile. That I was making a difference.
