Our Mission

The racial wealth gap has created a gaping hole in the African American community.  Economic experts have stated by the year 2040, the net worth of the African American community will go to zero.  We can no longer ignore this phenomenon. The National Coalition of 100 Black Women Chicago Metropolitan Chapter Inc. Economic Empowerment Committee endeavors to advocate on behalf of Black women and girls by promoting financial literacy, family wealth building, pay equity and entrepreneurship.

Through our national Sister-nomic$ program, we host economic empowerment workshops and seminars that address issues that threaten the economic viability of our community. By leveraging our relationships with local and national experts, we provide vital information on topics around:

  • Financial and money management
  • Pay equity and Career advancement
  • Small business and entrepreneurship
  • Homeownership and generational wealth

Our Partners

Our chapter was fortunate to partner with several corporate, government and civic organizations including Countrywide Financial, Morgan Stanley, Northern Trust, The Chicago Community Trust, Women Employed, JP Morgan Chase, US Small Business Administration, The City of Chicago, The Cook County Clerk’s Office, The Cook County Treasurer’s Office, Illinois Realtors, Goldman Sachs, and many more.
