I am at the American Association of University Women (AAUW) national convention in New Orleans, Louisiana – an impressive experience and a remarkable organization. Presenters included Lilly Ledbetter, Linda Alepin, and US Senator Olympia Snowe. On behalf of MentorCloud, this morning I presented an “Online Mentoring” Special Interest Group (SIG) with Deepti Gudipati, Director, Leadership Programs at AAUW.
This is my first AAUW meeting ever, and my first visit to New Orleans in thirty years. I enjoyed seeing Bourbon Street and walking along the Mississippi river. There are over 100 other women here from California and I was honored to join their state members picture tonight.
It seems typical of the interests and accomplishments of the AAUW women I have met that there have been three new book signings as part of the national convention:
Grace and Grit – My Fight for Equal Pay and Fairness at Goodyear and Beyond:
Leadership the Eleanor Roosevelt Way:
US Senator Olympia Snowe
Fighting for Common Ground: How We Can Fix the Stalemate in Congress:
