Friday, April 6 | 10:30 a.m. – 12 p.m. | Faculty Development Center

Did you know: nationally, women are paid just 80 percent of what white men are paid, and the gap for women of color is even greater.

Minnesota State University Moorhead has recently become a partner university of the American Association of University Women (AAUW).  The mission of AAUW is to advance gender equity in education and the workplace. Central to the mission is closing the pay equity gap.

An open house will be held Friday, April 6 from 10:30 a.m. – 12 p.m. in the Faculty Development Center, Livingston Lord Library. Students, faculty and staff are invited to stop by for refreshments, meet the local AAUW chapter representatives, Kathleen Nelson and Ev Quigley, and learn more about our membership benefits.

Benefits to students: Students enrolled at MSUM qualify to join AAUW as E-student affiliates which includes a free membership to AAUW national, electronic access Campus Connections, Outlook and AAUW research reports.  For more information: https://www.aauw.org/membership/college-university-partner/for-students/

Benefits to faculty and staff: funding, professional development, access to research. For more information: https://www.aauw.org/membership/college-university-partner/faculty-staff/
