Our section, the NCNW Gwinnett Section, was officially established on June 13, 2019. Our guiding theme, “Taking Gwinnett NCNW to Great Heights Through Legacy, Leadership, and Liberation,” has been our unwavering focus and commitment to the Gwinnett County community since we welcomed over 80 charter members on August 18, 2019.

The NCNW, which stands for the National Council of Negro Women, is a collective of organizations. Our mission is to enlighten, inspire, and connect with more than 2,000,000 women and men. We work in close collaboration with our 31 affiliates to fulfill our mission of leading, advocating, and empowering women of African descent and their families.
Within the Gwinnett Section, we have developed programs that align with our mission objectives while fostering a sense of community and sisterhood. We encourage you to explore the numerous programs and activities offered by our Gwinnett Section.

About Us

NCNW’s programs are grounded on a foundation of critical concerns known as “Four for the Future”

The National Council of Negro Women is an “organization of organizations” (comprised of 300 campus and community-based sections and 32 national women’s organizations) that enlightens, inspires and connects more than 2,000,000 women and men. Its mission is to lead, advocate for, and empower women of African descent, their families and communities.

NCNW was founded in 1935 by Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune, an influential educator and activist, and for more than fifty years, the iconic Dr. Dorothy Height was president of NCNW. Johnnetta Betsch Cole was elected Chair of NCNW in 2018, ushering in a new era of social activism and continued progress and growth for the organization. Today, NCNW’s programs are grounded on a foundation of critical concerns known as “Four for the Future”. NCNW promotes education with a special focus on science, technology, engineering, arts and math; encourages entrepreneurship, financial literacy and economic stability; educates women about good health and HIV/AIDS; promotes civic engagement and advocates for sound public policy and social justice.
