Introducing AAUW Leadership Programs

The Leadership Programs Fund is the newest and arguably the most exciting of all the AAUW Funds. It provides various kinds of leadership training for young women. Women taking leadership positions in their communities and in the larger arena fulfills AAUW's mission and also provides a solid prospective membership for our organization. Here are several of the programs funded by the fund:

  • Elect Her-Campus Women Win trains young women to run for student government on their campuses.
  • $tart $mart salary negotiation workshops teaches college women entering the job market how to negotiate a fair salary.
  • Campus Action Projects enable student leaders and campus faculty to design and carry out programs that implement AAUW's current research. Here in California the Gloria Weston Campus Outreach Fund provides similar programs for California campuses.
  • National Conference for College Women Student Leaders has just concluded its twenty-sixth annual two and a half day meeting which offered over 500 women student leaders opportunities to home their leadership skills.
  • National Student Advisory Council members advise AAUW staff about student needs, contribute ideas for combating sex discrimination in higher education and the workplace, promote AAUW's programs and participate in the National Conference for College Women Student Leaders.

    These programs and others in the fund are not endowed. That means that unlike fellowships and R&P grants they are not funded from the interest earned on the completed fellowships and grants but rather must depend on donations by members, AAUW states and branches and corporations.
