In 2018, AAUW adopted its strategic plan, providing the foundation and vision to advance gender equity for women and girls. Since then, we’ve achieved many milestones toward our goals. As we approach 2021, we’ve honed in on key areas where AAUW can continue to lead with an improved set of strategic objectives — call it the 2.0 version — that align with the enormous social, political and organizational changes we’ve seen since in the past two years.
