Meet the Team!
The DWU board is elected annually by the general membership.
Lois Newland (Chair/Treasurer) joined DWU six years ago, and became actively involved, bringing experience from past jobs she did in her country. She presently sits on 3 committees. She transitioned from the Steering Committee to the present Board and became its first Treasurer. She is also actively involved in other organizations that involve community work. Her mission in life is to stop oppression, and change our community for justice and peace.
Deloris Wright (Secretary) joined DWU in 2002, and became officially a member in 2003. She is a nanny originally from Jamaica who came to the United States in 1987 and has been working as a Nanny for 24 years. She is a graduate of DWU’s 2004 Nanny Training Program and was elected to the DWU Steering Committee in 2005. Deloris transitioned to DWU’s first ever Board of Directors in 2010. Deloris is a strong believer in the mission of DWU, that one day all work will be valued equally!
