Welcome to the Gig Harbor, Washington, branch of AAUW

We are so happy that you found our website.  Since you are here, please take a few minutes to learn more about us.  We hope that you will like what you see and consider attending a meeting and joining one of our interest groups.

AAUW-Gig Harbor exists for many reasons.  First and foremost is that we are a group of like-minded women who enjoy getting together.  We are eager to learn, strive to be engaged on the local, state, and national levels, and want to have a good time.  We take stands on public policy, support our brightest and best female high school seniors with college scholarships, and support the Tech Trek program by making it possible for several of our local 7th grade girls to attend a week long STEM camp on a nearby college campus.

We’re convinced that once you learn more about us, you’ll be excited about what we do.  Please take a look.  We’re eager to meet you!
