The DCWC 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 whom are appointed by county council. The Commission explores current issues effecting women and girls through networking events and guest speakers at the monthly meetings. Each March, the DCWC honors select Delaware County women in honor of National Women’s History month at a breakfast event. The Commission also arranges networking events in the fall and spring of each year. The DCWC operates on a September through August year and meets on the first Thursday of each month from September to June and holds and annual retreat in August.

In addition, the commission connects with key stakeholders to learn about current issues effecting 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 DCWC works closely with the Friends of Delaware County Women’s Commission, a non-profit 501(c)(3), membership organization that works with DCWC to sponsor events such as WOMENOMICS and publishing the Women’s Resource Guide.
