New AAUW Research on Women in Leadership

StateLegislators

Women are not new to leadership; think of Cleopatra or Queen Elizabeth. Think of the women who led the civil rights and education reform movements. But women are still outnumbered by men in the most prestigious positions, from Capitol Hill to the board room. Barriers and Bias: The Status of Women in Leadership examines the causes of women’s under representation in leadership roles in business, politics, and education and suggests what we can do to change the status quo.

Tip of the Month: New User Accounts

Changes occur for branches every day and one of those changes may involve changes in website support. Many website managers ask that new users be added to websites as editors after the initial launch of their sites.

Why?

An Editor is someone who can publish and manage the posts and pages created by him/herself as well as by others. In other words, Editors have the ability to write, publish, and edit anything on the website. They are in charge of the entire publishing side of WordPress, which is why it is best to limit the number of Editors to 5 people. Assign this role to someone who knows the “big picture” of what your website should be doing for your branch.

How?

Visit the AAUW Site Resources website and complete the Request Form for New Website Editor.

But Wait!

AAUW Site Resources recommends creating branch e-mail accounts rather than using personal email accounts.

Example: WhovilleAAUW@gmail.com – GOOD

CindyLouWho@hotmail.com – BAD

Using a branch e-mail account rather than personal accounts will ensure that all communication with Site Resources is in one place and can be passed on to new branch web managers or communications officers in the future.
