To advance gender equity for women and girls through research, education, and advocacy.

2018 Strategic Plan

AAUW is proud to be launching our new strategic plan – Beyond Aspirations: Advancing Equity for Women and Girls.
The plan ensures that AAUW is 100 percent mission-focused with an eye toward meaningful impact for women and girls. The Strategic Planning Task Force, made up of member leaders and AAUW advocates from around the country, is particularly grateful to the thousands of AAUW members who actively participated in this effort that defines how we will build on our rich history today and tomorrow.
