Women in Turning (WIT) is the newest committee of the AAW, bringing together women worldwide who share a passion for woodturning. WIT is dedicated to encouraging and assisting women in their pursuit of turning, to sharing ideas and processes to further members’ skills and creativity, and to increasing participation of women in the field of woodturning.
WIT itself is a committee of the American Association of Woodturners. The AAW WIT committee consists of a chairwoman appointed by the AAW President and the committee which she selects.

Opportunities for women to further their woodturning experience.
WIT is working with chapters to increase the number of women members in chapters and AAW.
Support WIT initiatives to encourage and assist women in their pursuit of woodturning.
The mission of WIT is to encourage and retain women in woodturning. Here are some suggestions of how you can help:
If there is a new member in your chapter who is not yet a member of AAW, tell her about AAW’s 60-day guest membership.
Pay it forward. Instead of telling a new member about the guest membership, buy her a membership. In return, she can pay it forward by bringing another new member into the AAW. This generous gift may be the beginning of a lifetime of enjoyment for many new woodturners.
