Welcome to the Palm Springs (CA) Branch of AAUW!

Welcome to the 2019-2020 season of Palm Springs AAUW!

Get to know us! We have a lot of fun between our monthly luncheons and interest groups, while we promote educational achievement for women and girls.

We send 8th grade girls to a STEM camp every year in our grand tradition known as Tech Trek. Best of all, we get to hear about what they learned when they return from camp!

Monthly luncheons are at The Grill at Marriott Shadow Ridge in Palm Desert the second Saturday of the month, beginning at 11:30 am. Don’t miss our amazing speakers.

If you have any questions about AAUW Palm Springs, please email us at aauwpalmspringsbranch@gmail.com.
