Monthly Luncheon, October 12, 2019
AAUW Tucson has a long history of supporting women’s pathways to education.
The AAUW Tucson October luncheon (Saturday, October 12) will feature a panel of female undergraduate students who participated in the Imagine Your STEM Future program when they attended Desert View High School. They will share their personal stories of building resiliency and self-confidence that helped to prepare them for the transition into higher education.
The Imagine Your STEM Future program works to mitigate the negative impacts of stereotypes and social messages that often deter girls from pursuing post-secondary educational opportunities, particularly in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). The program’s strategies include:
- the growth mindset framework
- long-term mentoring by women in STEM professions
- hands-on STEM challenges
- creating a safe space for girls to discover and explore their own potential.
The luncheon is at the YWCA, 525 N. Bonita Avenue. Arrival time is 11:00 to 11:30 a.m. with lunch starting at 11:30. The meal will include a taco bar with selections of beef, chicken and roasted vegetables. The meeting will begin at 12:15 p.m.
Deadline for reservations is Monday, October 7. The cost is $20 (by check) or $21 by PayPal.
