Our members advocate on behalf of black women and girls to promote leadership development and gender equity in the areas of health, education and economic empowerment. As a voice for millions of black women and girls in the united states, NCBW believes in inclusion, respect, racial and social justice, integrity and accountability and collaboration.

Structured for action, the National Coalition of 100 Black Women is committed to being a united voice for more than 20 million Black women in the United States. As a leadership forum, it serves as a role model to help elevate the quality of life for young Black Women and other Black women in transition. As an organization of career (professional and volunteer) women, it draws upon the strength of its membership to work toward solutions on issues of concern to the contemporary Black woman. As a network, it serves as a vehicle of communication among Black women for their own personal and professional development. And as an advocacy group, it collectively seeks the political and economic empowerment of Black women as a means of gaining access to mainstream America. To achieve its targeted goals, the NCBW develops alliances with leadership from corporate, civic, political and government entities and to build a consensus among special interest groups. Moreover, the Coalition, created to serve as the eyes, ears and voice for all Black women, positions itself as a complement to the strong heritage of existing Black women’s organizations that share its goals. NCBW’s unique strengths derive from the units that have proven to be the building blocks of national organizations with longevity: its local chapter structure and the members it is able to attract and mobilize. Membership is open to all Black women who want to make a difference in their communities. The idealism demonstrated by all members, young, seasoned and wise, has enabled NCBW to bridge the much-deplored generation gap in Black organizations. Each chapter is driven by a committee structure with concrete programs and activities. Members on the committees—education, economic empowerment, health, political action, and civic and community service—initiate and develop programs that respond to the specific character of each community in which NCBW is based.

Nationally, NCBW’s board members link the organization to other organizations with similar agendas, to corporate structures and influential individuals in fields that span the gamut of human endeavour. By having such access, NCBW can readily gauge the sentiment of any sector of society and has the ability to help determine the mood or thoughts of Black women across the United States for effective advocacy programmatic purposes.

To meet the diverse needs of its members, NCBW implements programs that provide an effective network among Black women, establish links between NCBW and the corporate and political sectors, enable Black women to be a visible force in the socioeconomic arena, meet the career needs of these women and facilitate their access to mainstream America, use the tools of role modelling and mentoring to provide meaningful guidance to young women, and recognize the historic and current achievements of Black women.

Today, the national movement has garnered thousands of members throughout 60 chapters across the country. Most NCBW members have completed college and hold a professional position. In the communities across America, NCBW lays claim to physicians, dentists, lawyers, judges, corporate executives, media personalities, educators, entrepreneurs, and an array of other skilled professionals from the public and private sectors. This wealth of resource talent is necessary not only for the achievement of the programmatic aims of the organization but also for effective interface with other groups in our society. NCBW consists of thousands of progressive women of African descent whose commitment to gender equity and socioeconomic advancement drives meaningful change to benefit women of color. We advocate through programming - Workshops and interaction addressing health disparities in black women and girls such as diabetes, weight management, metabolic syndrome, HIV/AIDS; our SISTER-NOMIC$ program addressing financial literacy and wealth building for black women; our mentoring programs; partnerships with historically black colleges and universities and our LEAD leadership development program for emerging high potential young women. Annually we provide a Leadership Development conference and a Legislative Training event to educate our members on current issues affecting our target audience.
