April 2019 Meeting

Get Involved Locally

Saturday April 6, 2019

 

The November mid-term elections were a watershed moment for women! Americans
elected more women from throughout the country to hold positions in both the House of Representatives and the Senate, as well as in state and local levels. Women are taking their places in powerful positions in all levels of government.

Despite winning the right to vote almost one hundred years ago, we find that we are still surprised at the most recent election results. Since the 1960s, women throughout the country have been increasingly involved in local and state politics, and they have made a difference. We keep coming closer to having our first woman president, a goal already achieved by 56 other countries in the world. We remain hopeful that our time is growing near.

The speakers at our Branch Meeting will be locally elected women involved on school boards and city councils. They are now part of the leadership in Long Beach and Lakewood. We look forward to hearing from Megan Kerr – Member of the Board, Long Beach Unified School District; Sunny Zia – President, Long Beach Community College District Board of Trustees; and Lena Gonzales – Long Beach City 1st District Councilwoman.

Please join us on Saturday April 6. Bring your daughters, granddaughters and your young friends who might have some political aspirations themselves. The doors are now opening wide for women in politics. Women will shape America and its leadership role in the world!

March 2019 Meeting

New Beginnings: Immigrant Women

Saturday March 2, 2019

 

Women immigrants have played a dynamic role in transforming America socially, politically and economically. Women historically have accounted for almost fifty percent of immigrants and currently exceed that. Women’s motivations for migration have been varied and complex. Gender has influenced migrant women’s choices to immigrate as well as their opportunities and challenges upon arrival.


Today there are more than 20 million immigrant women and girls in the United States making up 52% of recent immigrants. Nearly 12 million immigrant (foreign-born) women are workers in the United States today, comprising just over 7 percent of the total labor force. They are a formidable presence in U.S. society and the U.S. economy. Immigrant women workers are found at both ends of the educational spectrum; just over one-third have a bachelor’s degree or more, while more than two-fifths have a high-school diploma or less. Immigrant women work in every occupation and despite their hard work and educational achievements, immigrant women earn less than foreign-born men, and less than native-born men or women.

Statistics alone, do not tell the story of immigration, people do. Since its inception, this nation has been continually infused with the energy of newcomers. Yet their assimilation has seldom been smooth. The challenges faced today are not new, only the stories are. Sharing their stories with us will be a group of fascinating women who came to this country and are making their impact felt. Chanden Chance serves as President of United Nations Association, Organizing Group Long Beach – South Bay. Sandy Grigsby is a personal brand portrait photographer, author, and motivational speaker. Gaia Valentino was born in Avellino, Italy and now works in sales and marketing. Bianca Vobecky is the Founder, President & CEO of Vobecky Enterprises, Inc., a business dedicated to providing construction, construction management and nationwide trucking services. Join us on Saturday March 2 for another impactful meeting designed to allow immigrant women’s stories to be heard.

Women, Wealth, and Power

Saturday February 2, 2019

Emerging Faces of Change

The amount of wealth influenced by women and the rate at which it has been increasing are remarkable. Women are responsible for approximately $18.4 trillion in consumer spending and hold approximately 30 percent of global wealth. They are the sole financial decision-makers for one-third of households in the United States, 72% of Millennial women are primary decision makers for financial planning and 95 percent are involved in their households’ financial decisions. American women start 70 percent of all businesses, have a low-er unemployment rate than men, dominate nine of the 10 fastest growing occupations, and benefit from improving wage equality. During the past eleven years, while the number of women-owned businesses surged 58%, firms owned by women of color grew at nearly three times that rate (163%).

January 2019 Meeting

Yes, We Do STEM

Saturday January 5, 2019

Do little girls grow up and do science? Yes they do!
On Saturday, January 5th, Marie Carroll of the Jet Propulsion Lab in Pasadena will be at our
AAUW meeting to tell us all about women and science. Marie is a Configuration Manager who calls herself “the ultimate party planner”. She coordinates all of the STEM engineering areas to make sure that JPL’s “space-y” things get off the ground, and that they are working correctly, within budget, and on-time.
Marie is a local girl who went to St. Joseph’s High School (Go Jesters!) and then on to Whittier College for her undergraduate degree. She continued her education locally, obtaining her masters degree at CSU Fullerton. She will let us know how she ended up with this interesting “arrangements” position.
The American Association of University Women supports promoting and strengthening
science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education, especially for girls and underrepresented
populations.
Did you know that the AAUW Fund offers a Research Publication Grant in Engineering,
Medicine, and Science? Funding awards of $10,000–$35,000 are given to successful applicants
who are conducting basic research in engineering, medicine, or the physical or biological sciences and who have a doctorate degree in one of those fields. The grantee is required to publish their research in a scholarly publication and be listed as a primary author.
Come join us for the program and be prepared! Pat Ferrer will be conducting our annual
“ask” to help raise fund for Tech Trek campers for the upcoming year. And if that isn’t inspiration enough, Tobi Balma will explain how “you too” could participate at Tech Trek Camp this summer, either as a Dorm Mom or Instructor. More information at https://
techtrek-irvine.aauw.net/

At Tech Trek, girls are immersed in a world that empowers and encourages them to think about themselves as future scientists, engineers, mathematicians, and computer specialists.

November 2018 Meeting

Working Women and Pay Equity

Saturday November 3, 2018, Golden Sails Inn

Economic Security: Pay Equity and Working Women is a major issue supported by AAUW National, State and Local organizations. Many women are affected by unfair working environments and unequal pay. We are affected during our working lives and at retirement since retirement income and individual social security are based on salaries, positions and length of time worked. Families are affected.
The American Association of University Women believes that pay equity and equal employment opportunity are a matter of simple fairness. AAUW is a leader in the fight to end wage discrimination and open doors for women in the workplace. 
Despite civil rights laws and advancements in women’s economic status, workplace discrimination still persists. Typically, women who work full time take home about 80 cents for every dollar a full-time male worker earns.1 Over a career (47 years), women’s total estimated median earnings loss compared with men is $700,000 for a high school graduate, $1.2 million for a college graduate, and $2 million for a professional school graduate. 2
We will be seeing two stimulating videos from TED TALKs about women in the workplace followed by a discussion about the status of women and work in today’s American society.
Join us on Saturday morning, November 3 at the Golden Sails Best Western hotel for an informative meeting. Thanks to Flo Pickett for organizing the program.

October 2018 Meeting

A Reminder To Vote on November 6

Saturday October 6, 2018, Golden Sails Inn

Do You Want to Get a Better Understanding of the Ballot Measures
Before You Vote in November?

Our October guest speaker, Nancy Mahr, is well-qualified to share with the branch her knowledge of the 11 propositions on the upcoming ballot. Nancy is member of the AAUW Palos Verdes Peninsula Branch and is a California AAUW Director and Public Policy Co-Chair.

You may have received emails containing Nancy’s summaries of bills proposed in CA over the last year. For example, in May of 2018, Nancy sent out a statewide advocacy email sharing AAUW’s endorsement of SB1284, which would require large employers to “identify pay inequality through data collection”. The data would be used to “compile and report aggregate pay data based on gender, race and ethnicity”. Employers would be empowered “spot and correct pay imbalances internally”, which is “good for women, families and the economy”. As of August 16, 2019, SB1284 was in committee and under submission.

Her non-partisan overview of the state initiatives will provide you with a better understanding of how they came about, who proposed them, the most up to date pros and cons. Learn how AAUW decided whether to remain “neutral”, “support”, or take “no position” on each. Please join us to get answers to your questions from the AAUW perspective. We will meet again at the Best Western Golden Sails hotel banquet room and enjoy another delicious lunch. Members and guests are welcome to attend.

The History of Feminism: A Letter to the Next Generation

Saturday September 8, 2018, Golden Sails Inn

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” Eleanor Roosevelt
More then a hundred year ago, women in American dreamed of equal political status with men; dreamed of equal legal rights. Now women dream of equal pay and opportunity in a harassment free workplace. Women, despite legal and cultural barriers, have been actively engaged in every phase of the nation’s history. Women have helped shape the political, social, legal and economic life of our country. To fully appreciate the challenges faced by women today, the pro-gram looks at the lessons learned from the women’s rights movement. What do those changes say about us as a society today? How will a new generation of young women shape their future?

Leading our program will be Dr. Virginia “Ginny” L. Baxter, Long Beach community leader and member of the LBCCD Board of Trustees. In her over 42 years in education, Ginny served as a Professor of History, most notably developing and teaching a class in the “History of American Women”. She went on to be Asst. Dean of Stu-dent Affairs, Women’s Advisor and in 1983 began her tenure as Executive Director of the LBCC Foundation. Resources were raised for student scholarships, departmental grants, campus beautification and construction, including a major fundraising campaign that raised more than $6.3 million for an endowment creating the Long Beach College Promise scholarships, which provides a free first semester to every Long Beach area high school graduate. More than 4000 students have received the tuition scholarships.

Ginny has been recognized for her outstanding work including: LBCC’s “Outstanding Colleague Award”, Soroptimist International of Long Beach’s “Woman of Distinction in Education Award”, California Conference for Equality and Justice’s “Humanitarian Award”, and LB Press Telegram’s “Amazing Women, Education Award”. In her spare time Ginny created a new business, Ginny’s Getaways which combines her love of travel and students; the trips are used to raise money to support different charities and scholarship funds. She has been a member of AAUW for more than 30 years and has helped with arrangements for the annual AAUW STEM conference held at LBCC. Plan to come and hear what we want the next generation to learn!
