DON’T MISS THE FEBRUARY BRANCH MEETING!
Diversity, Inclusion, and Title IX at SOU
SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 10:30 am-noon via Zoom
You don’t want to miss our distinguished panel from SOU discussing the challenges of conducting Title IX investigations into sexual harassment and other initiatives related to Title IX compliance.
Colleges and universities have faced increased scrutiny if their Title IX policies, shaped by the Trump administration’s policies that rescinded numerous protections for students related to claims of sexual harassment. The new administration may reverse these policy decisions.
This will be an enlightening and engaging program as we learn how SOU is facing challenges associated with the changing landscape of Title IX compliance.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
AAUW’S EQUITY WISH LIST FOR THE BIDEN-HARRIS ADMINISTRATION
With the nation facing a persistent pandemic, volatile political unrest and a fractured, fragile economy, President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris face an unprecedented array of challenges as they begin their new administration.
Addressing racial justice, gender equity and education reform will be key to improving the economic security of women and their families and ultimately helping our nation recover from the current crises. On behalf of AAUW’s 170,000 members and supporters, we hope that our new leaders will take swift and bold actionnto implement these priorities in the first 100 days and beyond.
Julie Akins, Ashland’s new mayor, was the featured speaker at our Branch meeting on Saturday, January 23. Regina Ayers, AAUW Ashland’s Public Policy Co-Chair, moderated an informative question-and-answer session in which Mayor Atkins discussed the many issues and challenges facing our city.
