The National Board meets every two months, and meetings are open to chapter members. The National Board comprises the National Executive Board, Chapter Presidents, and Vice Presidents, along with National Committee Chairs. Email the national office to participate in a National Board meeting.
Sisterhood: A community and safe space for members to be affirmed and access resources to successfully navigate K-12, Higher Education, and marginalized environments. We’re inclusive of sisters who work in areas adjacent to higher education such as K-12, nonprofits, and community organizations.
Leadership and Professional Development: Promote intellectual growth and educational development through offered programs and a bi-annual national conference, as well as offer leadership coaching, engagement, and development opportunities.
Mentorship: ABWHE members partner with local schools and community organizations to mentor diverse students from middle school through the doctoral level.
Advocacy: Eradicate barriers that hinder Black women from thriving academically and in their workplace. We’re a resource to our members by connecting them with information and resources to navigate systemic racism.
