University women promote Blackwell 

Gloria L. Blackwell steps up to the CEO role at the American Association of University Women Oct. 18. Blackwell is currently EVP and chief program officer, as well as the group’s main representative to the United Nations. She joined AAUW in 2004 and has managed the association’s fellowships and grants program for 17 years. She is the second woman of color to lead the 140-year-old organization. 

Blackwell succeeds Kimberly Churches, who left $14M-revenue AAUW after four years as CEO to become president of The Washington Center for Internships and Academic Seminars. 

In an announcement, AAUW credits Blackwell for being the driving force behind signature programs such as training women in salary negotiations and building partnerships with major funders.
