Call for Volunteers – AAUW Tech Savvy Program –Saturday, March 16

Posted by Tim on February 25, 2019 in Volunteering, Volunteers Needed

Please Register to volunteer before March 2

AAUW, the American Association of University Women, is a national organization advocating for equity and education for women and girls.  Locally, the Buffalo branch – sixth oldest branch in the country—provides scholarship and interest-free loans for women and men.

The branch will host its thirteenth anniversary Tech Savvy conference on Saturday, March 16, at the University at Buffalo North (Amherst) campus.  Tech Savvy inspires middle school girls to pursue careers in STEM (science, engineering, technology, and math) areas through fun workshops.  The on a roll program provides follow-through sessions for high school girls.  And, adult sessions feature topics for parents, teachers, and other adults.   This year’s theme is She Inspires, I Inspire, We Inspire!   

Tech Savvy Buffalo is the flagship program for the national Tech Savvy program, with dozens of sites nationwide since 2014.

Along with support from AAUW, the conference is made possible due to support from Praxair and UB’s School of Engineering & Applied Sciences.

The program is run by approximately 100+ volunteers.   Volunteers are needed to help with set up, registration, room monitoring, ushering, and snack services.  Volunteers are needed for the full conference (7AM – 5pm)  or for morning (7 AM – 1pm) or afternoon (noon – 5pm) shifts.

Volunteers will receive continental breakfast, lunch, and t-shirt.  Volunteers are also invited to the pre-Tech Savvy reception on Friday, March 15. 

Recent college graduates (within last two years) who volunteer can receive a complimentary first year national AAUW membership.

Posted by Tim on February 18, 2019 in Academic Presentations, Academics, Community Announcements, Event, Networking, Workshops

A discussion of the human and financial costs associated with the U.S.’s reliance on mass incarceration

Featuring Distinguished Speaker David Fathi, Director of the American Civil Liberties Union’s National Prison Project

March 13, 2019
509 O’Brian Hall
4:30 p.m. FREE and open to all. Reception to follow.

The American Civil Liberties Union’s National Prison Project brings challenges to conditions of confinement in prisons, jails and other detention facilities. The Prison Project also works to end the policies that have given the U.S. the highest incarceration rate in the world. Fathi has a special expertise in challenging “supermax” prisons, where prisoners are held for months or years at a time in conditions of near-total isolation. Fathi also represented the ACLU during negotiations in the U.N., which lead to the adoption of the Nelson Mandela Rules.

Sponsored by the UB Inclusive Excellence and the UB School of Law
