Branches: If you have a close connection with a college this sounds like a great action project.  I know the timing is very short, but I just received this information today.  I encourage you to “Go For It”.    Mary

 

The American Association of University Women is pleased to announce its Campus Action Project for 2006-2007, Planning for an Economically Secure Future. This is an excellent opportunity to raise awareness of how workplace equity issues can affect women’s economic security.  This initiative continues AAUW’s work promoting “Education as the Gateway to Women’s Economic Security.“ 

Proposals are now being accepted from teams of students and faculty or administrators. We expect to fund approximately 10 projects of up to $5000 each.  All teams will receive technical support from AAUW staff and each team must identify and partner with a local AAUW branch member who will serve as a community advisor.  Projects must be implemented during the Spring of 2007 and can include web-based activities, workshops, art exhibits, speaker series and surveys among other activities. We encourage innovative and creative project proposals. Special consideration will be given to proposals from AAUW College/University member institutions.  Proposals must be submitted by November 8, 2006 to cap@aauw.org.

Selected teams will also take part in the national release of AAUW Educational Foundation sponsored research on workplace equity in April 2007 and one representative from each team will attend either the National Conference for College Women Student Leaders (NCCWSL) in Washington, D.C. in June 2007 or the AAUW National Convention in Phoenix, AZ in July 2007 to showcase their project.
