Working Collaboratively to Change the World
NFBPWC–NYC has a rich history and many inspiring women who have come before us. Four first ladies of the United States, a US supreme court justice, authors, businesswomen and pioneers of the women’s equality movement were members of this organization at one time or another. We are committed to building on this legacy by providing educational programs, collaborative business relationships, economic empowerment activities and networking opportunities.
