Empowering women since 1881!
Celebration and Installation
Saturday June 1, 2019
The June program celebrates accomplishments of our current year and introduces the AAUW 2019-2020 Officers for the upcoming year. Co-Presidents Denise Montoya and Shelly Arnold will install the newly elected officers including returning President Denise Montoya. Her continued leadership and professional experience will bring special insight and ideas to our branch for the upcoming year. Denise will announce the focus and objectives, aligned to AAUW’s mission, which will guide AAUW Long Beach next year as we transition from this year’s theme of “Looking Back, Moving Forward”. We are grateful for the entire incoming Board’s willingness to lead our branch.
To celebrate the installation of new officer, students from the Long Beach City College Performing Arts Department will be performing a series of short, hilarious plays from their current production of Love Sick, directed by Anthony Carreiro and written by John Cariani. The full production starts May 16th and runs through May 26th at LBCC. All members and their guests are invited to join us on Saturday, 1st at the Best Western Golden Sails for the final meeting and buffet luncheon of the branch year. Please RSVP for lunch by May 24, 2019.

Are you earning what you deserve? In 2015, full-time working women in the U.S earned 80% of what men earn. In California, the figure is 86% – better, but still not at parity. A portion of this gap is attributed to women’s lack of knowledge in how to best negotiate for their salaries and benefits.
Created for working women, AAUW Work Smart is an interactive 2-hour workshop that teaches you to evaluate, negotiate, and articulate your worth confidently in the job market. For more specific details, please see AAUW Work Smart under Projects on this website.
