Message from AAUW of Utah President

Laurie Hofmann

Dear Members and Friends of AAUW-Utah,

Welcome to AAUW of Utah. AAUW has had a presence in Utah in advancing women’s equity and economic standing since 1917. We began our work in earnest before women even had the legal right to vote in America. We work to support our mission to advance women’s equity through advocacy, education, philanthropy, and research. Our projects range from introducing young women to STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) to scholarships for those seeking a higher education, to Start Smart a program to teach women how to negotiate a higher salary in the work force.
We hope you will consider becoming a member of AAUW. We have branches in both the north and southern parts of the state of Utah. AAUW is open to all regardless of gender, race, creed, age, sexual orientation, national origin, or disability. Please check out our website and find the branch that is closest to you. Students of a two or four-year accredited educational institution may become members for free while they are pursuing their education.
Whether you are interested in national, state, or local advocacy, philanthropy to support our programs, improving pay equity for women or just being social, and meeting new friends, AAUW has something for everyone. We hope you will consider becoming a member of AAUW.

Thank you in advance,
Laurie Hofmann
President AAUW of Utah
