AAUW Empowers Women

AAUW has been working to empower women both as individuals and as a community since 1881. For over 130 years, we have worked as a grassroots organization to improve the lives of women and their families.

The Fort Myers / Lee County Branch supports the AAUW Strategic Initiatives of:

Removing Bias from Education

Gender, economics, race and ethnicity too often limit educational opportunities.

Supporting STEM Education – encouraging students through science fairs, support, and scholarships
Educational Funding – providing scholarships for women, especially those in STEM and returning to school

Fighting for Fair Pay & Economic Security

Closing the pay gap and embracing diversity, equity and inclusion will create a work environment where can all thrive.

Salary Negotiation – helping AAUW train 1 million women in salary negotiations by 2022

Advancing Women in Leadership

Though women make up the majority of college graduates and the labor force, we are not represented at the upper levels of management, board seats, and in leadership roles. We are working to change that.

Member Leadership – providing opportunities for leadership and skill building
Public Policy – engaging with our local and national leaders on policy issues
