One of the ways that AAUW advances equity for women and girls is through cause marketing — partnerships with companies that want to give back while engaging their customers and employees.
AAUW’s partners share our vision of closing the gender gap and are key players in driving equity for women and girls. In the fight to close gender gaps, they share their talents, resources, and vision to help make gender equity a reality.
LUNA and AAUW: #20PercentCounts
In recognition of Equal Pay Day, LUNA partnered with AAUW to offer a 20-percent discount to reflect the gender pay gap. By teaming up with AAUW, LUNA continued its history of championing women’s equality by raising awareness about the 20-percent gender pay gap that women face. To spread the message that #20PercentCounts, LUNA offered a 20-percent discount on all LUNA Bars sold on www.lunabar.com April 3–11, 2017, and matched the discount with a donation of up to $100,000 to sponsor no-cost AAUW salary negotiation workshops in partnership with Lean In’s #20PercentCounts campaign.
