DWU-GNY’s purpose is to bring Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing women together and provide opportunities to develop and share leadership and organizational skills, further career development, build up motivation and confidence, and work together as a team. DWU-GNY believes in shaping and promoting the common good for Deaf women everywhere. We encourage you to understand, reward, enhance problem-solving, evaluate, inspire and encourage Deaf women through networking, empowerment, and learning from peers. DWU-GNY provides workshops, training, events, and support groups designed to empower Deaf women. Resources, newsletters, and information are available. Past events have included International Deaf Women’s Day, Young Women’s Leadership Day, Wine & Cheese Social, Coffee House, Sign-A-Oke, MICA Fashion Show, Bowling Night, Biking in Central Park, Healthy Eating workshop, and Investment 101 workshop.
