Faces of AAUW

AAUW refuses to accept a future of unequal pay

At the end of the day diversity is not only the right thing to do, it’s good for a company’s bottom line. Without action to close the pay gap, unequal pay will be a stark reality for women and families for the indeterminate future. That’s a scenario AAUW refuses to accept.
