Review for AAUW, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I volunteer for AAUW in a National Committee role, a state board member and hold a local office. I was asked to join AAUW 3 years ago - an organization I knew nothing about, but have grown to love their causes and the individuals who make up the organziation. I see their mission statement advancing the equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy, and research in action. After attending the National Conference in Washington DC in June, I came away energized wanting to do all I could for the organization.

I have followed the legal cases they are fighting to make a difference and see what an impact they have on lives. I see what an impact they are having in STEM programs throughout the country. What great educational programs they offer!

I would see that the word gets out about AAUW, their mission and what they had to offer.

Role:  Volunteer & I am currently working to help recruit members in our local branch and also working with the fundraising committee.

I just recently returned from the National Convention and learned what I did not know about AAUW. It was a great experience to see and hear AAUW in action from the legal advocacy to lobbying on Capitol Hill.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would find ways to get the word out more on what they are doing. More articles need to be submitted to newspapers, etc. It is a great organization, but had a not been invited to join a few years ago, I did not even know it existed.
