About Us

Our Mission

NEW YORK WOMEN'S AGENDA (NYWA), founded in 1992 by the late NYC-icon, Elinor Guggenheimer, advances the interests of women and families through educational programs, advocacy, networking, and excercising the collective power of diverse women's organizations and professional women in New York City.

NYWA’s members represent the diversity of the city and include community groups: religious, ethnic and political groups; professional associations; and issues-based groups. Through NYWA, these groups unite to work on issues of common interest and to advocate for public policy. 

Together, the voices of NYWA members work in concert to become one rousing chorus, impossible to ignore.
