Become Involved in DEI&B Issues with AAUW

Interested in becoming more involved in DEI&B? There are a few ways you can get started! If you are part of a local branch, consider getting involved with their DEI&B committee, or ask if the branch currently has a DEI&B chair position on the board. If you are already involved with DEI&B at the branch level, or you are not involved in a branch, consider joining the AAUW-PA DEI&B committee, a state-wide committee made up of branch leaders in the DEI&B area.

Want to discuss becoming more involved? Email Ajla Laussegger, AAUW PA DE&I Chair.
