LInda D. Hallman

Linda Hallman is the executive director and chief executive officer of American Association of University Women (AAUW). She has contributed to the 130 year long legacy of empowering women and girls by expanding their STEM education, research, and programming.  Due to her efforts programs such as Tech Trek and Tech Savy have provided girls a chance to explore STEM careers, gain key skills, and blossom their interest in STEM.  

Hallman began with a bachelor’s degree in music education from Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana. She proceeded to earn her master’s degree in organizational management from George Washington University in Washington, D.C. Hallman began her career as a soprano soloist with the United States Army Band, “Pershing’s Own,” at Fort Myer, Virginia. From 1988 to 1997 she held virtually every leadership position with the American College of Health Care Administrators.  From 1997 to 2002 she served as CEO of the American Horticultural Society and before that she served as president and CEO of the American Medical Women’s Association.  She has been recognized as of the 100 Women Leaders in STEM by STEMConnector in 2013.

As of today, Hallman has moved back to her native area of Washington D.C. with her husband and standard poodle where she is well known for her impeccable garden. 


Welcome to the CLOSING THE GAP initiative.

Gender wage ratio data show that in 1960 women earned 60.7 cents compared to a dollar earned by men. More than 50 years later, the ratio hovers at 76.5 cents to one dollar. At this pace, it is projected it will take another 45 years to approach pay equity.

Closing the Gap: 50 Years Seeking Equal Pay explores why the pay gap persists and how to improve it. We hope to arm women with information and skills to assist them in earning fair pay throughout their own careers and toward a secure retirement.
