The AAUW National Convention is all about learning. You’ll connect with people who have new and creative ideas on how to empower women and girls. You’ll explore different ways to continue AAUW’s work. And you’ll do all these things — in addition to developing some valuable skills yourself — through convention’s backbone: our diverse workshops.

The 2017 workshops will emphasize AAUW’s Leader Essentials. These resources are organized by nine core skill areas critical for AAUW advocates’ success in any leadership role. The Leader Essentials allow you to focus on the skills you need when choosing which workshops to attend during convention. In addition to leadership development, workshops will also showcase opportunities in salary negotiation, research, and science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education. Honing leadership skills and staying on top of best practices is the best way to lead AAUW effectively and advance the mission.
