AAUW UH AT MANOA INTERNS AND RIO
The American Association of University Women at UH Mānoa’s mission is to promote AAUW’s values both on-campus and in the community. As a Registered Independent Organization (RIO) at the UH Mānoa campus, AAUW-UHM’s programs and initiatives aim to provide the tools necessary for women to gain economic security, to pursue their education, and advocate for women’s rights—with the broader goal of working towards a more equitable society.
AAUW-UHM is housed in the UH Mānoa Office of Civic and Community Engagement (OCCE) under the supervision and mentorship of OCCE Director Atina Pascua. AAUW-UHM is generously sponsored by the AAUW Honolulu Branch. AAUW-UHM interns work collaboratively with the AAUW Honolulu Branch on communication and outreach efforts.
For the 2020-2021 Academic Year, AAUW-UHM put on a total of 16 virtual events, including an Antiracist Parenting webinar series, a Women in STEM event, a series of Wahine webinars, and several educational movie nights. Many of these events were presented in partnership with other UH Mānoa or community programs, including Student Parents at Mānoa, the UH Library System, Read to Me International, Peace Corps, and AmeriCorps VISTA. AAUW-UHM’s events are open to students from other UH campuses, as well as the general public. The 2020-2021 events attracted 260 unique attendees.
The AAUW-UHM team for the 2021-2022 Academic Year consists of five student interns with diverse interests, backgrounds, and skills, including an undergraduate student, a post-baccalaureate student, and three graduate students. The intern team is led by Student Branch Coordinator Ronja Steinbach, a two-time recipient of AAUW Honolulu’s academic scholarship.
