Women’s History Month!

Toledo is so lucky to have so many organizations working in the area to empower the women and girls.  As your president I’m honored to represent AAUW when working with some of these organizations.  This is the third year our branch has collaborated with the Women of the World Symposium during Women’s History Month, this year with a focus on programming for area teenage girls.  See more info below.  I’m also excited to work with a new group, Women of Toledo.  We are planning a Equal Pay Day event for April 14th, watch for more details soon.  Just to name a few.

Did you see…  AAUW’s President, Patricia Fae Ho,  will be the Keynote speaker at the Ohio State Convention May 1-3?  Plan on attending, and call or send me a note so we can car pool!   419.787.8258

Happy New Year

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to attend the AAUW’s $tart $mart workshop and facilitator training in Indianapolis with Nina Corder (new branch member) and Jeff Witt (UT’s Eberly Center /Diversity & Inclusion).  Your Branch board is excited to work with the Eberly Center to offer $tart $mart to area students at UT this spring  and in the future.  Teaching “soon to be grads” salary negotiation skills.  Remember when you graduated and got your first job?  Do you know whether or not you received a fair salary?  Equal to the men in your field?  Luckily, in this day and age women, and men, can easily research the compensation for their field.  And with the skills learned in the $tart $mart workshops, one can confidently negotiate for the salary and benefits that match their education and experience. You are welcome to watch for the programs at UT and come to see what $tart $mart is all about.

So much more is planned, mark your calendars and we will see you at the next Event!    -Mickey Radtkin

Welcome to a
New Program Year

2014-2015 the best is yet to come!

And what a year it is shaping up to be, every year is just getting better and better.  There are a lot of great things happening in the Toledo area promoting women and girls.  As your president I represent AAUW everywhere! Looking to partner with other organizations on events to promote our mission.  I welcome you to join me, or if you have a group that shares the vision of empowering women and girls lets talk.  

I look forward to seeing all of you at the fall kick-off.
