AAUW’s Raleigh-Wake Branch
is proud to present the speaker for our
December 18th Meeting
Q: Who knows what midterm election outcomes mean for women?
A: Our Public Policy Chair and Political Junkie–Denny McGuire!
Join us on December 18th at 5:15 for networking and a post-election analysis of what the outcomes will mean for women. As Public Policy Chair for AAUW-NC, Denny will also assess the alignment of NC with public policy priorities as outlined by our state and national organizations.
Who? Introducing our Speaker:
Denny McGuire long ago made NC her adoptive home. A career in state government gives her the perspective our state and local organizations have banked on to give direction to our public policy initiatives. She expends her energy as a volunteer to passing the ERA in NC, registering and educating voters and ending discrimination against women by insisting that our nation (one of the last in the world) pass CEDAW.
More about Denny:
Raleigh-Wake County branch member Denny McGuire grew up in New Jersey and came to North Carolina to attend Elon College and like many others, stayed. Afterwards, she completed a Master’s Degree in Public Administration at UNC-Chapel Hill and accepted a position in state government, serving more than 40 years in inter-governmental relations, public policy and technology. She retired in 2015.
Denny has been involved with AAUW for approximately 15 years on both the local and state levels. Raleigh-Wake County is her primary branch and she is also a member of the Tar Heel Branch (a statewide virtual membership group).
Denny is one our esteemed Past Branch Presidents. Other leadership roles included her service as state AAUW Treasurer and now Co-Chair for State Public Policy. Her involvement with AAUW has led to collaborations with several other women’s organizations in NC. Representing AAUW NC, she served on the initial board of the ERA-NC Alliance. Recently she accepted a position on the board of that same alliance, worked on voter education and registration, and served on the coordinating Committee for Cities for CEDAW (Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women). Her public service also includes involvement with both Raleigh NOW and NC Women United.
When not doing volunteer work, Denny loves to read and travel. She has lived in Wake County for many years, residing first in Raleigh and now in Wake Forest, NC.
