Chicago Metropolitan Chapter History
The Chicago Metropolitan Chicago Chapter of the National Coalition of 100 Black Women was chartered on September 20, 2020, with a chartering group of 145 diverse women. The Chapter is located in the City of Chicago and serves the Chicagoland communities.
The Chicago Metropolitan Chapter’s membership is comprised of career professionals from all walks of life who are given the opportunity to advocate for issues of concern to Black women and girls. In addition, it provides leadership that elevates the quality of life for Black women, and serves as a vehicle to link Black women and girls to corporate and political sectors to enhance their own personal and professional development.
As an advocacy group, NCBW has three primary program foci: Health, Education and Economics where emphasis is placed on advocating for health disparities, S.T.E.A.M., and economic empowerment.
