New Teams to Serve You

One result of the June 2011 AAUW CA board retreat is a reorganization of familiar committees into new teams, as illustrated by this diagram.

The team concept was introduced to committee volunteers at our July Leadership Day.  We are working in these teams to better support our branches and to deliver mission-based programs.

 


What's New

Title IX Win in Mansourian v. UC Davis!

August 04, 2011

According to attorney Noreen Farrell, the Court found in favor for the Title IX claim against the University, but let the individual UC officials off the hook for the constitutional claim.  The Court was not supportive of the women wrestlers, but could not avoid the clear facts of the case showing a program-wide Title IX violation when they were students.  

Farrell extends heartfelt thanks to AAUW for our support in this case.

Tech Trek Made the TV News!

August 01, 2011

Two Tech Trek camps, Irvine and Stanford Hopper, were featured on the national CBS News recently. While the narrator neglected to mention the AAUW CA connection, plenty of viewers found their way to the Tech Trek website (www.aauw-techtrek.org) for information about our science and math camps and, in one happy case, to download the Donation Form. The video can be watched  from that site too.

Camp directors Amy Harbin, Jan Cook and Marie Wolbach worked with the video team and, in the case of Irvine, allowed them to film the girls in class and on a field trip. CBS looked for science camps for girls after three young women won the top three spots in the recent, first-ever, Google International Science Fair.
