AAUW-NM: Empowering women to take charge of their lives.
Presented by Mr. Charles Sallee, Deputy Director of the NM Legislative Finance Committee
The AAUW Strategic Plan is created through an inclusive process involving the AAUW Board of Directors and staff. The goals, indicators of success, and strategies reflect an integrated approach to fulfilling our mission, vision, and value promise. As AAUW continues to move forward in a changing world, so have our Strategic Plan and our Vision Statement.
The Simple Truth about the Gender Pay Gap
The gender pay gap is the gap between what men and women are paid. Most commonly, it refers to the median annual pay of all women who work full time and year-round, compared to the pay of a similar cohort of men. Other estimates of the gender pay gap are based on weekly or hourly earnings, or are specific to a particular group of women.
November 27th is GivingTuesday
Thanksgiving is a day for giving thanks. Black Friday is a day for getting deals. Why not designate a day for giving back? That’s the question that inspired Giving Tuesday, a day to launch the season of giving that comes with the holidays.
Giving Tuesday takes place the Tuesday after Thanksgiving and unites charities, families, businesses, and communities to celebrate generosity and the spirit of giving during the holiday season.
Because AAUW’s work to empower women and girls is so wide-ranging, each donation on Giving Tuesday will make a difference. Your gifts to AAUW change lives, covering everything from registration fees for a girl to attend a science and math camp to a fellowship to pay for child care while a mother is in graduate school.
If you are interested in creating a way to receive donations for your branch, take a look at our fundraising resource.
AAUW Action Fund Congressional Voting Record
The CVR provides information about senators’ and representatives’ co-sponsorship and votes. Each legislator is scored based on their record on AAUW priorities, which were decided on the basis of the AAUW Public Policy Program, adopted by AAUW members. These priorities include equal pay, education, campus sexual assault, campaign finance, human trafficking, and reproductive rights. The CVR is distributed to every member of Congress.

Get Paid What You’re Worth
AAUW’s renowned The Simple Truth about the Gender Pay Gap report finds women are still paid just 80 cents for every dollar paid to a man! We can change that with AAUW’s multipronged economy security initiative: by changing laws, encouraging employers to improve workplace cultures and practices, and empowering women to negotiate to their financial futures by making our Work Smart program available nationwide.
