The Del Mar-Leucadia Branch of the American Association of University Women invites the public to two events in April: a presentation on AAUW Public Policy at its monthly meeting, and a “Cocktails and Convos” event on Equal Pay Day at RELM bistro and wine bar.

Branch public policy director Laura E. Pasquale, Ph.D., will give a presentation on AAUW Public Policy at the April 11 branch meeting, 10 a.m. to noon at the Encinitas Community Center, 1140 Oakcrest Park Drive, Encinitas. The presentation will follow a social time from 10 to 10:30 a.m.

The “Cocktails and Convos” (conversations) event, will be from 4 to 7 p.m. April 14, Equal Pay Day, at RELM, 2917 State St., Carlsbad. Equal Pay Day marks the day on which women’s average income catches up to what men made by the end of the prior year. Appetizers will be served and there will be a no-host bar. RELM is providing a gift basket for an opportunity drawing.
