AAUW National has awarded a Grant to the Public Policy Program of AAUW-Hawaii and appointed Dr. Susan J. Wurtzburg to the AAUW Public Policy Committee for a 2-year period beginning July, 2015. This means that Susan, Public Policy Chair for AAUW-Hawaii, and Chair of the Advocacy Committee for the Honolulu Branch of AAUW, will be spending less time kayaking and more time advocating for Equal Pay and helping to set national AAUW public policy. A number of advocacy initiatives will be occurring in fall 2015 and spring 2016, and it is hoped that the AAUW membership in Hawaii will be highly involved in these events. Please contact Susan at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to participate. She eagerly awaits hundreds of responses!
