Welcome to AAUW Naperville Area (IL)

AAUW Naperville Area champions equity for women and girls at local, state and national levels. Our mission is bold – to advance gender equity through research, education and advocacy. We are an all-volunteer 501(c)(4) nonprofit social welfare affiliate branch of the American Association of University Women. AAUW, a national nonprofit nonpartisan organization, has been a catalyst for positive change since 1881.


What We Do

Guided by AAUW’s strategic plan, AAUW Naperville Area offers educational community programs and encourages our members to get involved:

  • To take action to advance AAUW public policy issues.
  • To support achieving economic security for women. One way is to take the Work Smart online course to learn how to negotiate for promotions, salary and benefits.
  • To prepare for community leadership roles. Join interactive Great Decisions Discussions groups about international policy decisions.
  • To assist women with scholarships to aid in completing college education despite challenges.
