Community Story

Board Member

Rating: 5

I have been a member of AAUW for nearly half of my life. My grandmother introduced me to the organization shortly after I graduated from college. I have been given many opportunities to develop my leadership skills, practice public speaking, hone event planning skills, network with skilled and knowledgeable women. But aside from the personal growth and wonderful friendships, I am proud to be a part of the tremendous good that this organization does in the world on behalf of women and girls. Our history is full of incredible success stories and milestones. We have much work still to do but I am confident that AAUW will make the necessary progress and I plan to be there to help!
