Welcome to the Los Alamos (NM) Branch of AAUW!

The American Association of University Women is a national organization that advances gender equity for women and girls through research, education and advocacy.

A key AAUW goal is to close the gender pay gap by 2030. Women working full time still earn only 80% of what men earn for similar work.

    • Learn how to negotiate fair pay for yourself by taking AAUW’s Work Smart Online .  The course is free and open to all.

    • Make your voice heard in Washington on pay equity and equal rights issues by becoming a Two-Minute Activist . Sign up to get regular alerts about emailing your legislators on pressing issues. This tool is also free and open to all.

AAUW Los Alamos Strategic Plan

We advance gender equity for women and girls by

Supporting education:

By providing funding, essay evaluations, and candidate interviews for Tech Trek New Mexico,

By providing a UNM Los Alamos Scholarship to a female who has returned to academic studies after a break of several years,

By encouraging UNM-LA students to apply for NCWSSL and providing financial assistance,

By judging and awarding cash prizes to elementary students at the Los Alamos annual Science Fair,

By enhancing our member’s awareness of national and international issues through book groups and the Great Decisions study group.

Supporting equity:

By working with Los Alamos League of Women Voters on candidate forums and voter’s guides,

By submitting opinion pieces to the local media on issues related to equity,

By offering to our members and the public, programs highlighting women’s issues and women’s accomplishments,

By lobby work at the state Roundhouse.

For the past several years our service project purchased  hundreds of pounds of fruit for distribution with the LA Cares food boxes. We filled about 100 bags which provide over 200 residents with fresh fruit for the holidays!
