Branch Information

Tacoma AAUW is the premier organization in our community dedicated to promoting equity for women and girls.  AAUW empowers women!

American Association of University Women (AAUW) is a nation wide organization with nearly 1000 branches and over 150,000 members. Our mission it to advance equity through advocacy, education, philanthropy and research.  In the Tacoma branch, members come together for the common goal of breaking through education and economic barriers for women and girls.

Public Policy: For over a century, the Tacoma branch has examined and taken positions on the fundamental issues of the day.  Today, our agenda includes pay equity; improved and stable funding for public education; protecting the reproductive health of women and girls.

STEM: Tacoma branch sponsors middle school girls for Tech Trek, a week long camp to teach, inspire, and strengthen girls’ knowledge and dedication to science, technology, engineering and math.  We want to remove barriers women face to careers on STEM. Tech Trek WA is a life-changing opportunity for girls to excel in math and science.  To support this effort and donate, click here.


Scholarship:  For many years, the branch has offered scholarships for college women.

Leadership:  Through our partnerships with Pacific Lutheran University, University of Washington Tacoma, and Pierce College, we offer college women student leaders the opportunity to attend leadership training and networking in Washington D.C.

Education: We offer members and the community regular programs to learn about ways to improve lives of women and girls.  Recent programs include:  “After Sexual Assault: How women can get care and why they usually don’t”; “The Politics of Being a Woman;”  “The Importance of Community Health Centers”;  Prison Pet Partnership”;  Overcoming the Glass Ceiling in Arts Leadership.
