Welcome to AAUW Palm Springs! Empowering Women and Girls in the Coachella Valley

Welcome to AAUW Palm Spring Branch! Join us for the 2023-2024 season where we are committed to putting our Mission in Motion as we strive to advance gender equity for women and girls in the Coachella Valley through research, education, and advocacy. We have a variety of events, programs and opportunities to connect to create community and impact for women.

Throughout the year, AAUW is actively writing grants and holding fundraising events to generate funds for our Tech Trek STEM, Tech Trek Alumnae, Gov Trek, and NCWSSL (college) programs.

Monthly luncheons are held on the second Saturday of the month at Morton’s The Steakhouse in Palm Desert, beginning at 11:30 a.m. Please join us at any of our upcoming events this season. If you have questions about our AAUW branch, please email us at aauwpalmspringsbranch@gmail.com
