2015 AAUW Annual Report
AAUW is always navigating toward a better future for women and girls through our programs and through the work of members and supporters like you. Together, we take many paths to do the work of One AAUW: tackling the barriers that women and girls still face in effective and innovative ways.
Fighting for Women’s Rights Today and Tomorrow
When Rebecca Norlander realized that her gender was the reason her career in tech wasn’t working out, she decided to do something about it.
Helping Girls Find Their STEM Passion
Kea Jolicoeur discovered a love of engineering and design at a Tech Trek camp, and now she returns every year to inspire another generation of women in science, technology, engineering, and math.
Women of Color Tell Their Own Stories
Students at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, were tired of the racism and sexism they faced on campus, so they came up with an unforgettable project to reject stereotypes and describe themselves in their own words.
Solving the Equation in Engineering and Computing
AAUW’s research shines a light on what keeps women out of engineering and computing, and it’s also inspiring companies and academics to put research into practice.
Closing in on the Pay Gap
AAUW’s salary negotiation workshops are training women to get paid what they’re worth, and an ambitious new initiative will bring these skills to half the working women in Boston.
Getting a dream job at the United Nations was possible for one young woman because of the training and network AAUW provided.
