The President’s Corner
Seventy six members and guests attended the February branch meeting to hear Eric Scott give an interesting and thought provoking explanation of the ways all of us use science in our daily lives. Congratulations to our four Named Gift Honorees – Jan Barnett, Pat Belk, Pat Kruger and Jessie Powell. Thank you for your contributions to our branch over the years.
The Redlands STEM conference is truly a branch project. Margee Fuller and her STEM committee have been planning and organizing for months. Over 90 of you will volunteer on March 6th to support this valuable experience for 600 eighth grade girls.
We have two upcoming fundraisers: LUNAFEST on April 4 will benefit Local Scholarships and the THEATER EVENT on May 8 will benefit Adult Literacy.
March Meeting: Gender Equity through Title IX and LAF
Kathy Bull, former head coach for women’s tennis at Ball State University will share her experience as a successful Title IX litigant. For 21 years, Kathy Bull served as the head coach for the women’s tennis team at Ball State University in Indiana. Midseason in 2009, the university abruptly fired Bull and she promptly filed suit under Title IX of the Education Amendments.
In July 2013, Bull — who received case support from AAUW’s Legal Advocacy Fund — settled her lawsuit with Ball State and was awarded more than $700,000 in cash and benefits, an outcome she couldn’t have attained without AAUW and its passionate donors.
Come hear her riveting story….
