Welcome to the Bend, OR Branch of AAUW!

The American Association of University Women advances equity for women and girls through advocacy, education and research.

AAUW will be a powerful advocate and visible leader in equity and education through research, philanthropy, and measurable change in critical areas impacting the lives of women and girls.

AAUW values and seeks a diverse membership.  There shall be no barriers to full participation in this organization on the basis of gender, race, creed, age, sexual orientation, national origin, disability or class.

By joining AAUW, you belong to a community that breaks through educational and economic barriers so all women have a fair chance.

AAUW of Bend was founded in 1931.  We currently have approximately 75 members.

Why do men still vastly outnumber women in leadership positions? AAUW’s newest research report, Barriers and Bias: The Status of Women in Leadership, explores this question, drawing from scholarly research and paying special attention to stereotypes and bias. The report provides recommendations for individuals and those in the education, corporate, and political sectors to contribute to an environment in which gender is no longer a barrier to leadership.
