There were no branch mission-based programs for December since AAUW CA branches traditionally gather together for their holiday parties. Many branches use this time of the year to raise funds for local charities, sending local girls to tech trek, or solicit funds for AAUW like NCWSSL, Legal Advocacy, etc. The Program Committee would like to acknowledge every branch and the good works they do all year long!

We're looking forward to announcing an outstanding mission-based program for January.

CONGRATULATIONS TO THE OAKLAND-PIEDMONTH BRANCH WHO HAS BEEN CHOSEN FOR THE NOVEMBER PROGRAM OF THE MONTH.
The Oakland-Piedmont branch with co-host Holy Names High School held a program that explores routes from college to a successful career in a STEM field.
A panel discussed their backgrounds, what it’s like for a young woman to work in STEM fields today, what they wish they had known as students, and their advice for the next generation of STEM career women.
Among the panelists were young women early in their careers as:
• a biofuels researcher from the Joint BioEnergy Institute
• a software engineer from Google
• a manager at Black Girls CODE
• a representative from GoldieBlox
Panel moderator: Linda Kekelis is an AAUW Oakland-Piedmont branch member and CEO of Techbridge, an organization that inspires girls to discover a passion for technology, science and engineering. This program was for middle school, high school and community college students, as well as their parents, teachers and mentors.
