The National Organization of Black Elected Legislative Women (NOBEL Women) is a non-profit, non-partisan organization primarily composed of current and former black women legislators as well as many appointed officials. Originally established in 1985, NOBEL Women is the country’s premier organization of Black women legislators committed to increasing and promoting the presence of Black women in government, non-profit, and corporate leadership.
As an organization, we have been successful with: (a) creating programs and platforms that advance black women in the fields of public policy, public service, and civic engagement; (b) serving as a network and support system for Black women in leadership; (c) serving as a medium for thoughtful dialogue on issues of public interest between elected officials and stakeholders, and (d) training and educating a class of cultivated and experienced women to assume government and/or corporate leadership roles.
NOBEL-Women welcomes women from all walks of life and men who share their interests in becoming members of the organization.
