Fred Weiner

Capitalizing on the Collectivist Culture of Deaf Community

Fred and Lynn WeinerFred Weiner is a native New Yorker, attending New York City public schools and spending much of his free time in the city's playgrounds and streets. It was during those years that he was exposed to an amazing array of people from all walks of life which profoundly shaped his views of the world.

Fred left NYC to attend Gallaudet University, but it's fair to say that NYC has never left Fred. Since that time, Fred has worked in many different settings including a deaf school, a not-for-profit advocacy organization, the Federal government, the United States Congress, a Fortune 500 corporation and of course, Gallaudet University.   Working in such varied settings has given him opportunities to appreciate and value the many different perspectives that others bring to the table, and how those perspectives can help make the world a better place.

Fred has been working at Gallaudet for nearly fifteen years and currently serves as Assistant Vice President for Administration. One of his projects is the development of Gallaudet's properties on 6th Street which aims to turn the area into an exciting part of the neighborhood where members of the Gallaudet community, neighborhood residents and visitors will live, work, dine and spend their leisure hours.  This project is, in part, what shaped his TEDx presentation.

Fred and his wife, Lynn, hope to retire to New York City where he can spend his retirement years giving small intimate tours of the city for visitors who use ASL.
