We’ll be discussing the following topics related to current women’s issues.

Have you ever experienced student debt?
• Did you know that women possess two-thirds of the total student debt in the United States? AAUW has recently released a report titled “Deeper in Debt: Women and Student Loans.” Women represented 56% of those students enrolled in American colleges and universities in fall 2016, and they continue to shoulder larger student loan debt than men. And due to the gender pay gap, women have less disposable income in which to repay these loans that leads to a longer re-payment period than men experience. Student debt is very much a women’s issue and further demonstrates the economic injustice between women and men.

How many of you have negotiated your salary and benefits packages in the past?
Do you feel you have the skill set to communicate your value to your current manager or employer?

• AAUW’s StartSmart program teaches college students how to negotiate their first salary and benefits packages. The WorkSmart program teaches employed women how to communicate their worth to managers and employers in order to obtain promotions, salary increases, and bonuses. Not being able to communicate your value in the work place leads to detrimental long-term effects that can negatively impact your future. Learn more about these free seminars and how you can learn negotiation and communication skills that positively impact your future.

Are you aware of AAUW’s most recent fundraising campaign, Charting the Course?

What is Charting the Course?

There are two goals for the Charting the Course campaign. Financially, the campaign will raise $1 million in unrestricted funds by December 2016. The campaign is also shifting AAUW’s philanthropic culture from restricted to unrestricted giving, which provides AAUW with the dexterity to act quickly in the face of future challenges that face women and girls.
