The Delaware County Women’s Commission was founded in 1985 by Delaware County Council to serve in an advisory role to County Council on issues impacting women and girls within the county. The DCWC has a 15-member board appointed by County Council. The Commission explores current issues affecting women and girls through networking events and guest speakers at monthly meetings. Each March, the Commission honors select Delaware County women in honor of National Women’s History Month at a breakfast. The Commission also arranges networking events in the fall and spring of each year. The Commission operates on a September through August year and meets on the first Thursday of each month from September to June and holds an annual retreat in August.
In addition, the Commission connects with key stakeholders to learn about current issues affecting women and girls. These stakeholders include local colleges and universities, social service organizations, the District Attorney’s office, community-based programs, and grassroots foundations. The Commission works closely with the non-profit Friends of Delaware County Women’s Commission to sponsor events such as WOMENOMICS and to publish the Women’s Resource Guide.
Delaware County is seeking to fill a vacancy on the Delaware County Women’s Commission. The term is for three years. Board members must be residents of Delaware County.
