Member Leadership Programs
Leadership Training for AAUW Members
AAUW members are the foundation for everything AAUW does to empower women. And AAUW helps members themselves by offering formal training and opportunities for members to lead at the branch, state, and national levels. AAUW provides members with tools and resources to make them the best leaders they can be, offering everything from in-person workshops to online resources.
Training Tools for AAUW Leaders
Strong, skilled member leaders make AAUW more powerful, locally and globally. That’s why AAUW is building a comprehensive set of tools and trainings that will help member leaders be better advocates in their AAUW roles and beyond.
Every two years, hundreds of women leaders from across the country gather for the AAUW National Convention. There, members meet up to exchange ideas and take advantage of dozens of workshops on leadership development, research, and the latest topics in women’s issues. See highlights from the 2013 convention and a preview of what’s to come in San Diego in 2015.
