Learn about our dedication to empowering Black women and girls in Central Ohio.
Welcome to the National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Inc., Central Ohio Chapter! We are excited that you are visiting our website to discover who we are and how we advocate for black women and girls in Central Ohio.
NC100BW, Inc. is a nationally recognized movement of over 14 million black women and girls in 28 states. The mission of NC100BW, Inc. is to advocate on behalf of black women and girls through national and local actions and strategic alliances to promote leadership development and gender equity in the areas of health, education, and economic empowerment.
I am honored to serve as the President of the National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Inc., Central Ohio Chapter (NC100BWCOC), a non-profit organization comprised of dynamic black women committed to elevating the voices of black women and girls in Delaware, Fairfield, Franklin, and Licking Counties.
As black women, we are the bedrock of our families and, by extension, our communities. Black women have more advanced degrees, own more small businesses, and vote at higher rates than all other groups of women and men. Yet, black women are poorer today than 5 years ago, experience greater income and wealth disparities, and die more often in childbirth than other groups of women.
NC100BWCOC advocates for access to educational opportunities at colleges, universities, and trade schools, with special emphasis on HBCUs; we promote careers in STEM and provide scholarships; we offer programs to inform and engage black women on gender and racial equity, wealth-building, and raising awareness to encourage healthy living. Through programs and advocacy, we provide a platform for ourselves and the community to remove barriers and build partnerships and alliances to create pathways to political engagement and economic power. Today, the NC100BW, Inc. Central Ohio Chapter represents a bold movement of women demanding to be seen, heard, and ready to lead.
We hope you will continue supporting our agenda by attending conferences and workshops, collaborating, and providing financial support to change the lives of black women and girls.
On behalf of our members and countless supporters and partners, we thank you for your support.
