Meet a Member

The value of AAUW to my life and career cannot be understated, from the skills I learned regarding salary negotiation — which helped me increase my salary significantly in a former job — to keeping on top of cutting-edge public policy issues that enhanced my work as a government relations professional. … Being involved with AAUW has been incredibly enriching.
