AAUW ELECTION RESULTS: MEMBERS HAVE SPOKEN
Many thanks to everyone who voted in AAUW’s 2021 National Election. It took a mere three days to reach the required quorum—a testament to our members’ passion and engagement.
Julia Brown and Malinda Gaul were re-elected as board chair and vice chair, respectively, and Elizabeth Haynes and Joseph Bertolino will retain their board seats.
AAUW’s public policy priorities were approved by 92% of voters. The board-recommended ballot initiative to remove the college-degree membership requirement did not receive the two-thirds vote required to enact a bylaws change. However, a remarkable 63% of you voted in favor of this change, indicating a momentum shift toward a more inclusive membership.
While we have many voices, all AAUW members share a commitment to advancing gender equity for women and girls through research, education and advocacy. More than ever, we must embrace our values and continue to strive towards diversity, equity and inclusion; it’s a journey that will never end.
