A Message from our President
Denise Hexom, Ed.D.
Welcome to our new website. We hope you will enjoy it and use it frequently to find out the latest information about our branch.
This past year we have had an opportunity to reflect on our branch – our accomplishments, programs, membership, and the culture which unites us around a common focus:
“To advance gender equity for women and girls through research, education, and advocacy.”
As a result, we developed new goals to achieve our mission and to ensure our viability as AAUW Roseville-South Placer Branch. The goals are as follows:
Maintain and support ongoing programs which include Speech Trek, Tech Trek, WoD, Scholarships, and other projects decided by the branch.
Recruit, train, and develop leaders from members throughout the branch.
Expand communication and branding through social media, website, Branch Lines, Facebook, and various advertising materials.
Expand opportunities for members to engage with women and young girls throughout our community (Our major focus for this year).
Build new relationships between and among current and new members through mentorships, interest groups, projects, and programs which focus on our mission.
Embrace and encourage innovative, diverse, and creative ways of doing, thinking, and acting in our branch.
A copy of our 2021-2022 Plan for Success will be located on this website as soon as it is completed. I look forward to working with every member of our branch in planning and initiating our innovative and exciting journey. We encourage new members to join a committee and work with veteran members to gain experience.
"Have convictions. Be friendly. Stick to your beliefs
as they stick to theirs. Work as hard as they do."
