  • State President introduces presenterOpportunity for presenter to connect with audience with some comments/brief stories.Thanks for being included in your state conventionEvery year, AAUW makes important contributions to advancing gender equityThis year is particularly noteworthy: The thoughtful and challenging work of the strategic process is now underway Despite challenging economic times, AAUW continues to be strong We are enjoying a major increase in both national and international visibilityToday we’d like to share the status of our transition to a more effective, streamlined, and connected organization
  • We’ll be covering:Details and accomplishments of the TransitionHow One Member, One Vote will workSome exciting activities: in Learning and Connecting a new branch award program and a preview of the soon to be released “Why So Few?” research reportFinally, will take a look-ahead at “Things to Watch for”At any time during the discussion, please feel free to ask questions.We will also have sufficient time at the end to entertain any dialog you would wish to have
  • AAUW Mission statement has been expanded to reflect our legacy and intent “AAUW advances equity for women &amp; girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy and research”AAUW is now invited by White House and members of Congress for counsel and to major events nearly every week. We are all celebrating a huge Legal Advocacy Fund success. Two major LAF supported cases won big at the appellate level. Both Claire Schuster’s case against Berea College and the plaintiffs in the Mansourian case of the female college wrestlers have gotten huge wins! Both attribute their ability to keep fighting to AAUW’s unswerving support over many years! AAUW is excited to be tapped by AARP as a partner in a nationwide program involving 1000s of AAUW members in helping to develop messaging that will help all women make plans for their long term care– once again demonstrating AAUW as the “go-to” leadership organization for women. After 9 years of collaborative advocacy: The Hate Crimes Prevention Act, was signed into law by the President on October 28, 2009 with AAUW present at the signing. The celebration was held in the AAUW board room, with Carolyn Garfein welcoming dozens of civil rights leaders as our guests.
  • The MPP, The Membership Payment Program, was a Pilot Program implemented in FY 2010. It was a huge success and is now a standard AAUW membership management option and all States are urged to participate! All MPP financial transactions were executed with out complication. All MPP remittances were made to states &amp; branches within one month, often in a week or 2. The Finance VPs say MPP invoicing makes collection simple. A new MPP briefing is posted on the website.AAUW launched $tart$mart, training 300+ facilitators, 60% are AAUW members – 1000s of college women will gain wage negotiations skills as a result.The National Girls’ Collaborative Project (NGCP) now- 3500 girls in 1500 projects nationwide – and growing. AAUW volunteers through the country are helping to make this important STEM project for girls a success. AAUW’s Outlook magazine has expanded to 3 issues in FY2010, and has gained enormous praise for its appearance and fascinating stories.AAUW launches the Leadership Corps – 43 field liaisons – please expect calls from them as they offer assistance and encouragement to branch leaders.
  • Strategic planning by the board is in full swing for AAUW’s future, with dialogue focused on some key issues that will help chart our course as we establish priorities for the future that capitalize on our new 501 (c)(3) charitable identity. They include:Emphasizing AAUW’s nationwide philanthropy – impact, importance and brandingContinuing to build our nationwide community &amp; “culture of trust” The board is doing its best to act in the interest of members with complete transparency.Enhancing our view of membership – a Growth strategy that - Intensifies focus on honoring/supporting current members - Utilizes creative new member acquisition tactics Providing a continuum of integrated programs, advocacy, research &amp; philanthropy that engages women across all generations &amp; demonstrates impact for all women and girls.Expanding AAUW’s “big tent” to embrace members/donors/ activist colleagues &amp; friends as we transition to our charitable identity.Following is not on slide but may be worth mentioning:Maintaining and seeking best governance practices at all levels &amp; focuses on widening leadership opportunities &amp; development for all interested members
  • This is a summary of the programs that are supported with tax-deductible gifts to AAUW Funds. Those who are passionate about a specific fund can designate their gift by making the check payable to AAUW Funds and writing the name or fund number of their preference on the check or accompanying document.
  • The Biennial Convention is where elections and votes on AAUW business and Bylaws Amendments take placeAnnual Meeting – This is a brief meeting required by Washington, DC law. Note that in prior years, the Educational Foundation, as a 501(c)(3), was also required to have annual meetings.All members will receive at least 30 days advance notice of the meeting via Outlook and the website, though there would be no particular reason that members would want to plan to attend, because there will be no member voting that will take place – Remember, with one-member, one vote, all eligible members must have the opportunity to vote.
  • Elections shall be held in which all members may vote in person, electronically, or by mail All voting members will receive a coded ballot in the AAUW Outlook Magazine which will uniquely identify the voter.Voting will continue until Saturday noon of the Convention and may be done in person at the Convention.. For those that voted as delegates at the convention last year, the mechanics of voting will be exactly the same, but you may choose instead to vote online right from your home, a preferable choice because the vote will register immediately instead of needing to be scanned. Voters who accidentally submit both a ballot and vote electronically will only have their first vote counted. Double counting of votes will not be possible, as the system only accepts one vote per member ID.
  • Preferential voting uses the Single Transferable Vote System.Voters will mark the ballot by preference with 1 being the first choice and the numbers increased to include all candidatesVotes will be counted according to the following system: 1. Ballots will be grouped according to the indicated first preference. If a candidate has a majority then that candidate is elected. 2. If there is not a majority, the candidate receiving the lowest number of votes will be removed and that candidate’s votes will be redistributed to the next higher preference.3. If there is still not a majority, the process outlined in #2 continues until a majority is reached.
  • Goal of the Breaking through Barriers Awards are to Encourage and recognize high quality AAUW mission-based branch programming that breaks through barriers for women and girls in order to: Give visibility to effective, replicable programs, Encourage programming creativity, and Reward excellence.
  • Be careful not to spend too much time reading the content of this slide.The audience will generally be way ahead of the presenter.How does our nationwide AAUW community break through barriers for women and girls? You will probably be familiar with this slide that was part of the video we showed at Convention last year. From top left to right, the circles represent the major focus areas of our work together in AAUW We advocate for women’s career, financial and life choices We champion equitable compensation and treatment We promote challenging careers as a means to improved quality of life We develop and motivate leaders We foster networks that help women succeed. We support accessible, affordable, high-quality education for all women and girls.How does your branch break through barriers for women and girls?
  • Expansion/Clarifications:Demonstrates innovation ... As an alternative, the program can be an effective implementation or adaptation of a model programCarries the AAUW program brand Other organizations may play a role, but AAUW must be identified as a program leader
  • There will be a Breaking through Barriers Awards Webinar in May 2010Online applications for the awards will open summer 2010 – Feb. 15, 2011, and will be announced on the website and emails.Finalists and honorable mention awardees will be announced by March 15, 2011 via multiple public relations and internal alertsTop 3 awardees will be selected from among finalists and announced at the AAUW National Convention, June 16-19, 2011.Applications for awards will be reviewed by panel composed of the Branch Program Resources Task Force, select board members and staff
  • This is the last slide of the Breaking through Barriers Awards SectionThere will be a great deal of recognition for those awarded.The top three branches to honored with the Breaking through Barriers Award will receive cash prizes of $2000.The purpose of the cash prize is to act as an incentive to continue effective programming and reward achievement of that goal.Members of the top three branches and the rest of the finalists will receive display at a Convention event.The top three and selected others will have their programs featured in a Program in a Box.All awardees, finalists and honorable mentions will receive recognition in multiple AAUW publications and social media outlets.
  • AAUW staff and members extremely active in social media – expanding our blogging, twittering, Facebooking enormously this year and gaining a huge following – we are delighted that so many members and friends have engaged with AAUW as we get out our messages on behalf women and girls
  • The new AAUW website is expected to be launched in the April-May periodIt’s updated appearance is more colorful and it’s development is focused on improving the ease in finding information.
  • SiteWise ™ cost ranges from $19.99/month to $49.99/month depending upon the complexity of their needs and the size of the branch/state.  The baseline $19.99 is dirt cheap given the capability (as are the other price breaks as well) and members have to keep in mind that they can make these self-supporting, if not income generating, through sponsorship and the hosting of individual webpages for member that have a business or service to marketHow do we get more information?For the next several months, set up fee is free
  • This is the last slide of the Learning and Connecting SectionSummarize the below content so that this slide takes no more than 1 minute. Note that the “Playground” can be particularly helpful for newly elected leaders.Note that “Chapter Leaders” may disturb some members who work hard to enforce the term “Branch”. Presenter should note this is not an AAUW offering but a partnership with Cynthia. Many may not know who Cynthia is.AAUW has officially launched its partnership with Cynthia D’Amour, author of The Lazy Leader’s Guide to Outrageous Results, who specializes in helping associations get members involved. The Chapter Leaders Playground is an online community for volunteer leaders from across organizations. Your AAUW membership will give you access to more than 40 30-minute webinars a year to help you achieve even greater success as a state or branch leader. More than 150 joined the Chapter Leaders Playground in AAUW’s first month. These member leadership development workshops include leaders from hundreds of nonprofit organizations sharing their experiences and advice.Examples of webinars include ―The Second Time’s a Charm — Bringing Back Formerly Active Members,‖ ―Share the Wealth — Chop Those Projects Up!,‖ ―Orientation — It’s Not Just for Newbies,‖ ―Boost Attendance with Meeting Themes,‖ and ―How to Make Recruiting Cool to Do.‖ Don’t worry if you miss a webinar; you’ll have access to the archived recording for another 45 days. AAUW also has a special “sandbox” in the Playground for Members to have discussion forums periodically. We believe Cynthia and the Playground will be a valuable tool to help you grow your branches and be more successful as leaders. Join today! A link is available through the AAUW Member Center on our web site: www.aauw.org
  • Every Member Surveys - AAUW received over 18,000 completed Every Member Surveys in 2008. Our goal is to surpass that this year as we conduct our 2010 Every Member Survey. We want to hear from as many of our members as possible, we all know a collective voice is a strong voice.The Every Member Survey will be included in the May edition of the AAUW Outlook magazine. It will be easy to remove and comes with a self addressed return envelope. The survey will also be available for completion online, the link available through the AAUW website (www.aauw.org).And we all know how important it is to make our voices heard, so encourage your leaders to alert all of their members – complete the survey to help guide AAUW plans for the future!Branch/State Survey - Our volunteer committees, both Programs and Membership, have developed an online state/ branch survey for distribution sometime in May of this year.We have never compiled a complete list, if you can believe it! The more we know about all of the activities AAUW does throughout the country, the better able are we to highlight all of the good works we do, to steer prospective members to our states/branches and to help us use these as models for branches looking for ideas.All states/branches will be provided further details as we get closer to the survey distribution mark.
  • Branches can make a huge difference by urging your local stations to pick up the PSA and play it often!
  • Plan on being with us for the 2011 AAUW national convention. It will be fantastic, and you really won’t want to miss it!This is the last slide of the Things to Watch for SectionThe End of Presentation slide is Next
  • This is the last slide of the Main DiscussionWhere we’re goingWhat we doWhy you are a memberOpen for questions and dialogThe Additional Information section covers topics not included in the main discussion
  • This is a summary of the programs that are supported with tax-deductible gifts to AAUW Funds. Those who are passionate about a specific fund can designate their gift by making the check payable to AAUW Funds and writing the name or fund number of their preference on the check or accompanying document.
  • AAUW’s research is a powerful force in gender equity education, culture change and legislation.A few of past reports are illustrated here.AAUW’s research achieves broad media exposure.As one example, the “Where the Girls Are; the Facts about Gender Equity in Education” report was viewed by over 10 million people.
  • As a result of both relevance and high quality, AAUW’s research achieves broad media exposure. We are thrilled to tell you that this year’s coverage of Why So Few has been astounding, more than 150 articles have appeared already, and the coverage continues. This kind of media attention is great for all of us, and we urge you to bring the press release posted on the aauw webside to the attention of your local media, and remind them of your impact locally at the same time!
  • Let ee sha korum (rhyme with quorum)Moon een Let chay (Italian pronunciation)Supporting women and girls in science, technology, engineering and mathematics has been a part of AAUW’s mission since its founding in 1881. Throughout its history, AAUW has encouraged women to study and work in these traditionally male fields, investing millions of dollars in graduate fellowships and grants and engaging in research, programming and advocacy to break through the barriers for women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. AAUW is proud to have been selected by the National Science Foundation to conduct this study of women’s underrepresentation in these fields. The report would not have been possible without the generous contributions from the Letitia Corum Memorial Fund and the Mooneen Lecce Giving Circle. AAUW is grateful for AAUW members who have made gifts to the Memorial Fund and the Giving Circle. Finally, AAUW thanks contributors to the Eleanor Roosevelt Fund which is the financial backbone of all of AAUW’s research activities including the production of this report.
  • Women have made tremendous progress in education and the workplace during the past 50 years, including progress in scientific and engineering fields. Yet progress is uneven across the scientific and engineering fields. This chart shows that, while women make up about half of biological scientists, for example, they make up fewer than 7% of mechanical engineers in the workforce.The 50% goal may not be appropriate for every field, but it should be used to create a climate or situation where women and men of similar talent who want to be scientists or engineers have equal opportunity to do soWhy So Few? draws on the peer reviewed research literature to present 8 research findings that shed light on this underrepresentation of women organized into three areas: Social and environmental factors that shape girls’ achievements and interest in math and science; Female college students interest in STEM fields; Women’s success in the scientific, engineering and technology workforce.OPTIONALComputer science and engineering are especially important as these jobs tend to be well paying and do not usually require a graduate degree (and additional educational debt).At the doctoral level, women are underrepresented, even in biological sciences (see page 16 Figure 12b). To become leaders in research, women will need to gain equity within this elite workforce.
  • Based on interviews with top researchers and a review of the research literature, the report provides evidence that social and environmental factors have a measurable impact on:Girls Performance and interest in Math and ScienceRecruitment and Retirement of women Higher educationPersistence and achievement in the STEM WorkplaceSocial and environmental factors shape girls’ achievement and interest in math and science.What can we do to change our social environment? Remind girls that their intellectual capacity is not fixed, rather our abilities grow as we learn and develop new skills. The point is not to discover your gifts, but to develop them. We can expose girls to role models, women who excel in the so-called “STEM” fields. Many AAUW branches already have programs geared toward bringing girls and female role modes together – So we are already on the right track!Encourage children, especially girls, to develop their spatial skills through play and games. Spatial skills can be developed through drawing and building with construction toys.
  • High school preparation in math and science is a precursor to pursing a STEM major in college and a STEM career later in life. Historically, boys outperformed girls in math, but the gender gap has narrowed over time and today girls are doing as well as boys in math. The graphs show that over time, on average, both female and male high school graduates have earned more credits in math and science. And girls earned more credits than boys. Female high school graduates also earned higher grades, on average, in math and science, than their male peers.The following two slides show larger versions of each of the above charts
  • High school preparation in math and science is a precursor to pursing a STEM major in college and a STEM career later in life. Historically, boys outperformed girls in math, but the gender gap has narrowed over time and today girls are doing as well as boys in math. The graphs show that over time, on average, both female and male high school graduates have earned more credits in math and science. And girls earned more credits than boys. Female high school graduates also earned higher grades, on average, in math and science, than their male peers
  • To distinguish from the last slide, this one shows the comparison of boys’ and girls high school math and science grade point averages over a 15-year period. As you see, while scores are rising for both, the boys continue to outpace the girls’ performance
  • Even though girls are taking more high school course credits and are achieving higher GPAs, by the first year in college, women are less likely than men to say that they are interested in majoring in science, technology, engineering or mathematics. The difference is most pronounced in engineering.Based on our review of the literature on gender issues at the college and university level, and on our interview with researchers, we concluded the climate and culture in science and engineering departments in college and university has an especially large impact on female students. Yet this does not mean that colleges and universities are off the hook – yes fewer women are less likely to come to college with the intention of pursuing a STEM field – but there are ways that the science, technology and engineering departments can successfully reach out to female studentsFirst, actively recruit female students. They come to college less likely to say they want to major in a STEM field, so recruitment is a task for departments that want to achieve diversity.Second, Redesign your Introductory courses to bring out the broad, real-world applications of the field. This approach has been found to be helpful for all students, but especially female students who are more likely to be turned off by the “weeding out” competitive structure of some introductory courses.Research profiled in the report demonstrates that women are “harder on themselves” in terms of assessing their abilities in math and science fields. They are also more likely to think that they must be an “exceptional” student to make it in a STEM field. Female students may need to be reminded that a B in a difficult course is a grade to be proud of.
  • This is the last slide of the New Research – “Why So Few?” SectionWhy So Few? The answer is all around us. Like all AAUW research, this report will be as influential only if we all help spread the word. Host a discussion with teachers, girl scout leaders, and other interested groups. Hold a “mini” conference on a local campus, perhaps in partnership with a local student group.Visit our website to learn more about what AAUW members are doing to share this report with their communities.
  • Every Member Surveys - AAUW received over 18,000 completed Every Member Surveys in 2008. Our goal is to surpass that this year as we conduct our 2010 Every Member Survey. We want to hear from as many of our members as possible, we all know a collective voice is a strong voice.The Every Member Survey will be included in the May edition of the AAUW Outlook magazine.

The more we know about all of the activities AAUW does throughout the country, the better able are we to highlight all of the good works we do, to steer prospective members to our states/branches and to help us use these as models for branches looking for ideas.All states/branches will be provided further details as we get closer to the survey distribution mark.
  • Unique to AAUW, the “AAUW Experience” is our brand new communication vehicle. A one-of-its-kind virtual tool, the AAUW Experience allows the user to simply click through our community (no avatar’s needed here!) to not only learn about our mission, research, and programs but to actually see and hear from actual members and/or participants of the importance our mission is to women today. This AAUW virtual community will be available on our website and as I said, is extremely easy to use. A simple click of a mouse brings you to six different buildings, each representing key areas o AAUW’s efforts to break through barriers on behalf of women and girls. Going from right to left: The Community Center – which will be the entrance point to the AAUW Experience, including a video of introduction to AAUW and to this “AAUW Experience”The Town Hall – highlighting our advocacy effortsThe Court House – Legal Advocacy Fund issuesThe Office – pay equity, family and medical leave act, etc.The Library – AAUW’s research, museum, samples of partnerships (CARE)College/University – Programs, NCCWSL, Social Media Each building houses one or two rooms for the user to explore as they experience AAUW” By clicking “hot spots”, they can watch videos, read bulletin boards, learn about our grass roots activities – and feel their hearts being tugged as they listen to real women describe real challenges in today’s world.Let’s take a quick look inside a few buildings in the AAUW Experience community.
  • As individuals clicks the Community Center, they will listen to our docent (individual pictured at the bottom) describe AAUW and the purpose of this virtual community. They are shown how to explore the community. Hot spots are highlighted as they roll their mouse or click the links directly. And everything in the room (hot spot or not) points to something AAUW. See the doors in the back? In the virtual building, a person uses these to enter the AAUW community theater. On the stage, the “movie” is a “welcome to AAUW and to our virtual community” introduction video.The key to this “AAUW Experience” and for you to tell all your state and branch members – It’s easy and fun! Within a few minutes, by simply clicking buildings and hot-spots, the user will experience our passion – what AAUW does on behalf of women and girls.
  • This is the last slide of AAUW ExperienceIn all of our buildings, we have hot-spots that are interactive, but not necessarily audio or visual. This bulletin board, for example, in the Student Union of our College and University building, points out the availability of our fellowships and grants and branch scholarships, highlights NCCWSL, etc., all while looking like a real bulletin board.Throughout our community, we have “news racks” with AAUW magazines that can be explored, video clips from the AAUW programs and events, and Fellows who describe how AAUW changed their lives.We purposely made this “AAUW Experience” interactive, to ease the way of the individual as they wander through town and to make it fun so they keep exploring. Not only for our members, we want to attract the attention of anyone interested in women’s issues, to show them the importance of AAUW and our work.Further information about this virtual community will be sent to you. [Note: if it is already launched when you give this presentation, let them know where on the AAUW Website home page the link to the community can be found.
