We Support Programs for Women and Girls

For middle school girls: Tech Trek makes STEM fields exciting and accessible 

AAUW Bend Branch sponsors Tech Trek Central Oregon, and AAUW Tillamook Branch has held Tech Trek STEM camp for girls who are passionate about Science Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. 

For high school girls: STEMEd for Girls is underway, paving the path for success through high school and on to a career
Computer science and engineering are among the fastest-growing and highest paid jobs of the future, yet only 16% of engineers are women. Help engineer a promising future for the young women in your life through AAUW’s STEMEd for Girls program, which began July 7. The next free workshop on July 28 will explore the opportunities in physics and engineering. Future sessions will cover math, technology and more.

AAUW annually invites hundreds of college women from around the country for two days of leadership training, inspiration and networking at our National Conference for College Women Student Leaders (NCCWSL).
