Definition of a Woman

At the WNY Women's Foundation, we recognize that anyone who identifies as a woman is a woman.

Inclusivity Statement

Diversity, equity, and inclusion are central to the WNY Women's Foundation's vision and mission. We believe that bringing together diverse voices from different backgrounds, perspectives, opinions, experiences, ideologies, and lifestyles makes us stronger. We stand firm against all forms of injustice, inequality, and racism, which threaten a just and unbiased society. These values are non-negotiable, and they guide our work and commitment to being part of the change. Looking through an intersectional feminist lens, we strive for equity for all people, while creating opportunities for each woman to thrive.
