Great Decisions

Great Decisions is a Foreign Policy Association program designed to engage citizens in learning about the world. Our branch’s Great Decisions group reflects the interest of branch members in AAUW’s rich legacy of international work and its consultative status at the United Nations.

Each year a panel of experts chooses eight topics for study. The program model involves the following:

  • Reading the Great Decisions Briefing Book
  • Watching the short, related DVD
  • Meeting in a group to discuss the most critical global issues facing America today.

The Vienna Area Branch group meets on the third Sundays from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. in members’ homes.

  • January, Climate Change and the Global Order
