AAUW FL Tech Trek camp is a week-long STEM camp for rising eighth grade girls. Girls live on campus in residence halls, attend core classes, hands on workshops, field trips and a Professional Women’s Night. Potential campers must be in the seventh grade, nominated by their teacher, complete the application process and interview before selection is made by an AAUW state committee.  This would have been the eighth year that students from Flagler County participated in this event.

 Work Smart 

The link is here:  Work Smart Online

Benefits of taking the Work Smart Online course:
  • Improve your negotiation skills – not just for salary but for ALL kinds of negotiations!
  • Learn about the pay gap and hone your skills as an advocate for pay equity
  • Raise awareness about AAUW’s important work by articulating why negotiation is so important:
  • AAUW’s research on the gender pay gap shows that, one year out of college, women are already paid significantly less than men.
  • Women who work full time take home 80 cents for every dollar a full-time male worker is paid. And over a lifetime, those lost potential earnings add up.
The average woman will lose between $400,000 to $1 million over her lifetime due to the pay gap.
Women who are retired also negotiation in many aspects of their lives. The same skills will help them as well.
Let’s empower women so that they can get what they deserve!

AAUW’s Mission
AAUW advances equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy, and research.

AAUW’s Value Promise
By joining AAUW, you belong to a community that breaks through educational and economic barriers so that all women and girls have a fair chance.

 

The words “it’s a girl!” radiate excitement about a world of possibilities ahead — but as we see in this video, a little girl’s dreams are often limited by the words “if” and “only.”
