AAUW Las Cruces, established in 1923, is the oldest and largest branch in New Mexico with over 90 members. We have been moving women forward for nearly 100 years!
The American Association of University Women (AAUW) has been empowering women as individuals and as a community since 1881. For 140 years, we have worked together as a national grassroots organization to improve the lives of millions of women and their families.
A key AAUW goal is to close the gender pay gap by 2030. Women still earn only 80% of what men earn for similar work. In 2018, AAUW announced a bold pledge to train 10 million women in salary negotiation by 2022. This free online course is available to everyone, whether an AAUW member or not.
