State Conventions Update: This Is Your Moment

If you couldn’t make it to your state AAUW convention this year, this video presentation from AAUW CEO Kim Churches will bring you up to speed. It highlights three immediate actions you can take to help women achieve economic security:

  1. Take the Work Smart negotiation course and spread the word. “We’re so proud of Work Smart Online, a training tool we created with funding from the Coca-Cola Foundation and other important partners,” says Churches.
  2. Advocate for our policy initiatives. Help us support federal legislation like the Paycheck Fairness Act or speak out for fair pay laws in your state or community.

Support our greatest-needs fund. “To stay at the forefront of national conversations and policies, we must be able to access funds immediately, without restrictions or delays,” says Churches. But we can’t do it without gifts that can be used where they’re most needed.
