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

Welcome to the 2020-2021 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 (when we’re able to have them in person) 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. While we’re under COVID-19 restrictions are luncheons will be held at your computer.

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

Join us! Here’s what’s happening every month this season!

Due to COVID-19, we are no longer meeting in person for lunch. However, we are still having our monthly meetings via Zoom on the second Saturday at 12:30 pm.

Come ZOOM with us!

Our groups such as Book Club, Reel Revelers, and Great Decisions are still meeting too!
