Education as the Gateway to Women's Economic Security

That is the "theme" for AAUW this year. It's long and has a lot of words, but the meaning is clear. AAUW programs across the state focus on this theme and on our mission: advances equity for women and girls through advocacy, education and research.

AAUW NYC Branch is focusing it's efforts for Black History Month on advocacy through education by holding a panel discussion highlighting a wide variety of careers (2/24/07) and dinner and "teach-ins" (2/23/07). This event is free, but an RSVP is required by Feb. 17th to Chair Dr. Nkechi Agwu, 212 220 1337 or nagwu@bmcc.cuny.edu..
