About Us

The National Black Women’s Society (NBWS Inc.), was founded on March 5, 2005 in Dorchester, Massachusetts. Five dynamic women of color recognized the absence of a Boston- based organization that offered young professional women of color the necessary platform for leadership and support to realize their full potential. Today it has emerged as the only leading organization in Boston that targets emerging women of color who are looking to develop their personal, professional and civic lives. We have hosted over 100 events and programs and impacted the lives of over 500 women through the years. We continue to use our leadership, creativity and influence to shine a positive light on women of color in this region and beyond!


The National Black Women’s Society Inc will lead and empower women of color to develop their personal and professional lives by providing tools and access through social activities, civic engagement, and leadership development.


Our vision is to be the global organization that effectively empowers and develops the leadership of women  of color who are committed to improving their communities by improving themselves first.

Help us achieve our mission of empowering women of color.
