Progressive Women Remaining Relevant
in a Global Society

Welcome to the Southwest Section!

The NAUW enjoys a strong legacy of leadership and service to our community.  NAUW provides support to young women and men in their educational goals, along with personal development.

NAUW members receive training and guidance in issues important to our communities with the objective to share what we have learned with our communities.  Seminars, speakers, and excursions serve to provide NAUW members with the education and experiences that enhance their community outreach skills.

Come learn more about NAUW and the Southwest Section within our website. You are welcome to use our Chatroom to interact with NAUW members and others in the Community wishing to discuss issues important to all of us.

The content of this website will change frequently, as topics of interest are presented.

If you have articles, photos, or blogs that you would like to share, please be sure to contact us!
