Welcome to the Woodbridge, VA Branch of AAUW!


Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

AAUW has a DEI Toolkit and Videos of Webinars that are both informative and useful for individuals and groups wishing to effect a change to “Inclusive Spaces”. This link will connect you to access: https://www.aauw.org/resources/member/governance-tools/dei-toolkit/plug-play-dei-programming/

On Saturday, January 22nd, AAUW-VA’s DEI Chair, Cyndi Shanahan moderated an excellent panel on “Creating Inclusive Spaces”. There were only 100 spaces, which filled within a few minutes of Sandy & Susan logging in. It was an excellent session. Below is a link to the recording: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lHYFDV2XYRc

The question that the panelists were responding to at the beginning was:
Do you agree with the AAUW definitions for Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging?  Can you expand on them to provide more context? Patsy Quick sent the slides in a power point.  If you would like to view these, please contact Susan at smbaauw@gmail.com

Why does it matter?

The pay gap has lifelong financial effects that grow over time, from the ability to pay for education and childcare to saving for retirement, impacting women in nearly every profession. The Work Smart program teaches women at all stages of their career how to negotiate their pay, resulting in improved financial futures for themselves and their families.
