Leadership Programs

Nationally AAUW prioritizes identifying barriers to women in leadership and increasing the number of women in leadership roles.

Leadership Morgan Hill

AAUW Morgan Hill annually sponsors a woman in the community to attend Leadership Morgan Hill. We believe that participation in this program is an important way to increase AAUW Morgan Hill’s connection with the community while enhancing local women’s leadership skills.

If you are applying for a scholarship, please complete the following AAUW Morgan Hill scholarship application BEFORE  submitting the Leadership Morgan Hill application.

Young Women Leaders

The Young Women Leaders is a group of teens mentored by AAUW members who are enhancing their leadership skills through engaging in the community in both social justice activities (such as advocating for climate change awareness) and helping  other teens develop their leadership skills. This group initially was formed to provide an annual leadership conference for teens. The conference is held in April each year.
