If you believe in equity for women and girls - in women being able to live a self-determined life - whether on campus, at work, or during retirement, then AAUW San Diego is for you. If you would like camaraderie, intellectual stimulation and the company of women who make a difference, then you will find yourself very much at home with AAUW San Diego.
Equity means freedom from bias or favoritism and includes the quality of being fair or impartial. AAUW San Diego, in coordination with AAUW California and AAUW national, advances equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, research and philanthropy.
Founded in 1911, AAUW San Diego is the original “mother” AAUW organization in San Diego. We serve metropolitan San Diegans from the shores of La Jolla to the eastern slopes of San Diego State University. (Any eligible individual can join AAUW San Diego; however, membership in one of the other AAUW San Diego County branches may be more geographically convenient.)
Membership in AAUW San Diego is open to all graduates who hold an associate or higher degree from a regionally accredited college or university. In principle and in practice, AAUW values and seeks a diverse membership. There are no barriers to full participation in AAUW San Diego on the basis of gender, race, creed, age, sexual orientation, national origin, disability or class.
