Kim Churches, AAUW CEO, listens to learn what AAUW branch members all across the country think about AAUW’s direction into the future. She is preparing to lead AAUW into the future with knowledge, vim, vigor, and vitality! Listening is one of the most important skills a CEO can have to support communication throughout any organization and Kim has that 100+ percent. She is full of passion and energy for what we do and I anticipate an exciting future under her leadership.
