On behalf of the National Council of Negro Women- Mitchellville-Bowie Chapter, thank you for visiting our website. I hope you found something that sparked your interest and that our website provides you with an understanding of our mission, profound legacy and wonderful sisterhood.

NCNW’s founder Mary McLeod Bethune was a trailblazing African American educator and civil rights leader. Bethune, who strongly believed that education was the key to equal rights used the power of education, political activism, and civil service to achieve racial and gender equality throughout the United States and the world. She once said, “The true worth of a race must be measured by the character of its womanhood”. Today, NCNW continues to sustain her legacy of faith, scholarship and service.
I am humbled and truly honored to represent NCNW-Mitchellville-Bowie as their President. These Phenomenal women encompasses a variety of backgrounds. We have educators, financial consultants, medical professional, community leaders,  business owners, pastors, sorority members and Public Service professionals. My vision for MB-NCNW is to continue the upward trajectory of excellence.
NCNW’s most valuable assets are the Women who make up our members. I would like to capitalize on the strength of our members which embrace our organization’s mission to make a difference in the lives of others and our communities. I want to create events/activities programs that align with our national programs that will bring awareness, enhance our physical beings and promote healthier lifestyles. Explore the reason why we all chose MB-NCNW and reignite that initial passion to reconnect, reclaim and retain our membership as we continue to grow. 

I would like to:
- Encourage overlapping programs/events, thereby strengthening the presence of MB-NCNW to continue the expansion of our footprint in the community.
- Create an internal mentorship environment for our young women (youth chapter)  in order to tap into our amazing resource of women to enhance their lives by empowering them to make positive life choices in meeting their personal, professional and educational needs: promoting community responsibility and to encourage them to break through stereotypes to help create a pathway for them to be leaders in the future,

 I encourage you to learn more about our organization and feel confident that at the end of your visit, you can envision yourself as a part of our Team.
