The Aurora Branch has taken steps to create a Diversity Committee Jugbeh Charles is Chair of that Group.
Our interest groups are very active and also meet monthly. Presently the groups include book discussions, culture & cuisine, hiking, bridge, memoirs, Meeting of the Minds, Enneagrams and Great Decisions.
At the national level, we contribute to AAUW’s Greatest Needs Fund and in the past the Eleanor Roosevelt Fund, the Educational Opportunities Fund and the Legal Advocacy Fund.
Locally, we support college scholarships given annually to Aurora residents to complete her/his junior or senior year at a Colorado college or university. We also partner with the Community College of Aurora to sponsor Equal Pay Day, an event that focuses on the issues surrounding equal pay, pay equity, and gender based discrimination.
NerdWallet, a financial literacy site, ranked Aurora, Colorado as the best large city for women to work in the nation. The June 9, 2014 report considered Women’s earnings, Income equality, and Population growth.
Thanks to higher-than-average recent population growth, a low cost of living and a relatively high level of income equality between women and men, Aurora ranks as the best large city for working women. Aerospace, defense, bioscience, renewable energy and transportation are the major industries in our city.
