45th Anniversary

Celebrating 45 Years

This Is Us - Making a Difference

In New Ways and New Directions

In commemoration of our 45th anniversary, let’s take pride in reflecting on our recent successes as we stood together in the face of a raging pandemic. We overcame the obstacle of in-person meetings by transitioning to virtual gatherings where our enrichment programs have remained true to our mission of empowering women, supporting women entrepreneurs and promoting diversity:

September: Mary Pollock, Government Relations Coordinator of AAUW Michigan, spoke on public policy issues impacting women.

October:    Tracy Nichols Busch, PhD, professor of women’s studies and founder of the Ferris Museum of Sexist Objects at Ferris State University, revealed the ugly side of female suppression, demonstrating what women have overcome and challenges they still face.

November: Successful entrepreneur Rachel Liu Martindale, founder and owner of Milk and Honey Bakery in Ann Arbor, led members in a scone bake-a-long and shared her philanthropic and community giving.

December: Talented members Patty Domin and Val Gagnon hosted a gala holiday event, demonstrating gift wrapping and making holiday appetizers and beverages.

January:   Carrie Cook, certified yoga instructor, led members in chair stretching exercises, which can be integrated easily into a home-based workout routine.

 

2021 Michigan Fashion Designer Showcase Luncheon is RESCHEDULED for April 2, 2022.

Welcome to the AAUW Northville/Novi Branch

The Northville-Novi Branch was established in 1975 to promote equity and education for women and girls in the Northville-Novi area.

We join because of what AAUW stands for; we stay because of the friendships we make.
