AAUW: Empowering women since 1881

Welcome to the Lake Oswego Branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW).  Organized in 1976, the branch draws members from Lake Oswego, West Linn, and surrounding communities.

Established in 1881, AAUW is now a nationwide network of more than 170,000 members and donors, 1000 branches, and 100 college/university partners. It is nonpartisan, but not value neutral. AAUW fights to remove the barriers and biases that stand in the way of gender equity. It trains women to negotiate for pay and benefits and to pursue leadership roles. AAUW also advocates for federal, state and local laws and policies to ensure equity and end discrimination.

AAUW is open to all graduates who hold the Associate or higher degree from a college or university. We seek a diverse membership. There are no barriers to full participation on the basis of gender, race, creed, age, sexual orientation, national origin, disability or class. As an organization, we condemn racism. 


Holiday Party – On Zoom

 Saturday, December 12, 2020 at  4:00 p.m

Yes. We are having our annual Holiday Gala this year. It is moving to Zoom.

Just think, we won’t have to drive on ice or in the snow; we won’t have to worry about having a drink or two before getting into our cars; and we won’t have to be concerned about parking!

So, please, join us as we celebrate and come ready to share stories of holiday traditions or disruptions, your favorite decoration or scrumptious recipes.

Be festive.  Sparkle. Dress for a party. Zoom in front of your tree or another holiday background. Make yourself a special treat and accompany it with a beverage of your choice.

Most importantly, join your friends and share smiles and the warmth of friendship.

Login information for this meeting will be sent to all members prior to the party. If you are not a member but would like to join the meeting, please contact us.  The “doors” will open at 3:30 p.m. for those members who would like an opportunity to socialize before the presentation.

Please join us as we celebrate being together even when we can’t!

Due to our current concern about the corona virus, Lake Oswego AAUW will not be holding any public events before March 2021 at the earliest.

However, we are setting up virtual meetings, using ZOOM, to continue with our many book clubs and other Interest Groups.  Please contact us if you are interested in participating.
