I am honored to be your AAUW of Missouri President for the next two years. With the new national strategic plan rolled out August 1, 2018, and the August 20 announcement of the Missouri/Kansas Start Smart/Work Smart it looks like we will have a busy and exciting several years. We will continue to work on pay equity, get out the vote, leadership training, Title IX, and closing the gender gap.
AAUW Mission: To advance gender equity for women and girls through research, education, and advocacy.
AAUW Vision: Equity for all.
AAUW Values: Nonpartisan. Fact-based. Integrity. Inclusion and intersectionality.
When women vote we change the conversation. AAUW has a long history of holding legislators accountable for how they vote on AAUW priority issues. AAUW is nonpartisan. We do not support any candidate or party, but we do follow the issues important to women and girls and families. Click on the “advocate” tab for important information.
