AAUW’s Five-Star National Recognition Program rewards affiliates (states, branches and other organizations) for aligning their work with the AAUW strategic plan and other initiatives that foster the organization’s mission of advancing gender equity for women and girls.This has become an annual program

In summer of 2024, AAUW national will email a survey to branch leaders collecting important data on their work between July 1, 2023 and June 30, 2024. Some of the questions on this survey will correlate to the Five Star criteria listed above. Responses to that survey will be used as the Five Star Program application for FY24 and going forward. Membership Matters and member leader emails will provide details on the timing of the survey as we get closer to summer 2024.
