AAUW invites students to network with local professionals


The Marquette chapter of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) will host an event entitled “Career Night: Empowering Women as they Launch.”

The event, will take place from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 8 to give NMU students an opportunity to mingle with professional women from the Marquette community.

The event will be at the Women’s Federated Clubhouse and is designed to provide attendees the opportunity to gain experience with professional networking, AAUW Membership Co-Chair, Leslie Warren, NMU dean of library and instructional support said. This event and the AAUW is not limited to women; anyone with a goal of supporting women is invited. Women from a variety of fields including nursing and law will be in attendance and are at different stages of their career, she added.

“Come on in and we’ll help you get introduced,” Warren said. “If you come alone or in a group, there will be ways to get you included in the convo and we will make sure you get to be a part of it.”

This event is co-facilitated by Warren and her fellow AAUW Membership Co-Chair, Taylor Susa, a graduate student, who recently created a student organization to include the NMU community in AAUW. Warren and Susa created a list of conversation starters for students to use while mingling.

“I am really excited to bring students and the community together. Marquette and surrounding areas have a special bond with NMU,” Susa said. “I know that all of the professional women who will be in attendance are coming for the students—I think that itself speaks volumes about what this event is all about.”

The AAUW is an organization with branches around the country that is devoted to equal rights and supporting women and girls in education and economic independence, Warren said.

“I really like it when people meet each other and new opportunities grow from that,” Warren said. “I look forward to the meetings that
inspire people.”
