Study Groups

What are Study Groups?

Study groups provide an opportunity for members to grow intellectually and creatively, broaden their involvement in topics of interest, become agents for intelligent community action and meet people who share similar interests. Please note: anyone is always welcome to attend any of these groups – no strings attached! Drop in, & bring a friend, to experience fellowship and the pleasures of lifelong learning.

AAUW In Action (AIA) …

AAUW in Action is a study group that serves as a spring- board for community service activities for our branch that promote AAUW’s mission.

If you are interested in joining us for a meeting, or just knowing what we’re planning, please ask to be on our email list by sending an email to Erica at

Next meeting: Email meeting on Tues, January 12, 2021.

Monday, January 11th at 1:00 pm.
A Zoom meeting to talk about how the International Women’s Day event in March could look this year will be on Monday, January 11th at 1:00pm. If you would like to join us, please email Erica for the link. We are looking for someone willing to take over the chair position. There is an active committee with representatives from 10 local organizations who are involved!

Lois Gilbert, who has been writing the Women’s History Month daily blurbs for the La Crosse Tribune these past 5-6 years, is not able to do it this year. Is anyone interested in taking on this project? It’s all done from home via computer. The theme this year is “Valiant Women of the Vote: Refusing to Be Silenced.” Please contact Erica at if you’d like more information.

We are concentrating on social media posts to keep the community aware of AAUW and the issues we support. You can follow, like and/or share our posts from:

Note: Please send items that you feel are relevant to AAUW’s mission for posting on any of the above to our branch email:


Are you interested in examining issues facing women, girls, our nation, and our world? Join me on one of two introductory sessions to talk about what a SANE group could be like.

SANE stands for Salient and Newsworthy Events. In the last few years, I’ve been wondering about how we can address issues that are negatively affecting how we live and work together. We could read books, watch documentaries, attend seminars, and strategize ways to make our community and world better.

Thank you to the members who have already reached out to indicate their interest in getting together to contemplate, learn, and act.

Please join me on January 12th at 1 p.m. or January 14th at 10 a.m. via Zoom. You can fill out this Doodle poll with your session of choice: medium=link

Ann Brice will then send you a Zoom link for the meeting. You can also email her your choice at
