It’s been great to be in Washington DC and an honor to give the closing keynote at the American Association of University Women (AAUW) National Convention. AAUW features in an important part of women’s history I share in No Excuses (page 175 if you have the book). That makes it extra special to be here.
My job is to inspire the members to “Take AAUW Home”. So I created this downloadableTaking AAUW Home Personal Guide to make it easy for each person to write down her own personal reflections on the convention and her action plan with goals and action steps for reaching the goals once back home. This format might also be helpful to use for local AAUW branch meetings back home-another reason I’m making the guide downloadable HERE and easily accessible.
In case you need a 9 Ways Power Tools crib sheet, feel free to check it out or download that HERE.
The message of my speech is “be uppity in advocacy.” AAUW has been such a leader in advocating for equal pay, educational opportunities for women, and reproductive rights. I can’t wait to learn how members are taking AAUW home–please share in the comments section below!
