Activities & Special Events

Empowering Women Through Educational Programs

AAUW Redding Branch, Inc. conducts various activities and events to help women and girls explore their interests and find the confidence to pursue their passion and dream professions. Our women’s empowerment programs include:

Homes We Visited

  • An energy-efficient geodesic dome home with a huge woodworking workshop.
  • A down-sized retirement home displaying items from the owner's Peace Corp days. This home features a workshop that can be easily converted to a second unit.
  • An elegant oasis on the Sacramento River where the owners can experience outdoor dining year-round. This house also has a workshop.
  • The Behrens-Eaton House Museum with the newly restored upstairs.

Beneficiaries of the Event

In the past, proceeds from this event have provided nearly 500 scholarships to students graduating from Shasta College who attend a four-year university. Half of the proceeds are awarded to California women finishing advanced degrees.

2022 Conference Postponed

When AAUW Redding and conference leadership undertook this event for 2022, we committed to carefully watching the conditions of COVID and how they would impact its implementation. Our conference serves girls from across the north state, and out of an abundance of caution for their safety as well as the safety of our volunteers, presenters and members, we made this difficult decision in these unprecedented times to postpone the event until a future date. 

Please contact us with any questions, concerns, suggestions or if you want to be notified of the next event. Email us at:

Behind the Event

This conference is a collaborative effort between the AAUW Redding Branch, Inc., the Simpson University, and the Shasta County Office of Education. We also thank the support of the following sponsors.

What We Offer

Tech Trek are STEM immersion camps that have been designed to help girls engage in science, math, engineering & technology exploration and learning. Studies have shown that girls’ interests can be sustained if they are exposed to the careers available to women in science today. Tech Trek provides some of that exposure.

Each year, AAUW Redding Branch encourages local girls to find their passion in high-tech careers by providing scholarships to attend Tech Trek Camp. The girls are invited to give a brief presentation of their experience at one of the Branch meetings.
