Gateway to Equity Award Presented to CMU’s Girls of Steel Robotics

April 20, 2016

Accepting the award: Dr. Theresa Richards, FIRST Robotics Program Coordinator, Carnegie Mellon University
This award was established by AAUW-PA to recognize an individual group, organization, or business that has shown by action and philosophy the promotion of equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy, or research.

This year, our branch is pleased to present the Gateway to Equity Award to Carnegie Mellon University’s Girls of Steel because they have made it their mission to not only built great robots, but also to support women and children’s involvement in STEM. They are a strong, determined, and bold team inspiring girls and women to think both technically and creatively.

February 20, 2016 :  Women in Politics

Refreshments: 1pm,

General Meeting: 1:30 pm,

Speaker: 2:00 pm

Please join us for our first general meeting in the New Year. Our speaker will be Rachel Kutz-Flamenbaum and she is a past AAUW American Fellowship Recipient (2013-2014). She is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology at University of Pittsburgh. She received her PhD at SUNY Stony Brook, May 2008.

Dr. Kutz-Flamenbaum focuses on the ways that individuals and organizations come together within diverse movements to integrate highly disparate frames, tactics, and social groups. Her new research project looks at the use of humor in women’s social movements, investigates shifting representations of women’s political activity, and documents the dynamism and creativity of movement actors as they pursue social change.
