NGWCC is a new non-profit organization formed to be a council for educators, administrators, business leaders, parents/guardians, students, community leaders, and community organizations to advance and empower girls and women of color. NGWCC’s mission is to advance and empower girls and women of color and to take action to eliminate the numerous barriers that continue to affect the psychological, emotional, physical, and social well-being, and growth of girls and women of color.
Understanding the critical need for new and continued research on girls and women of color, in January of 2016, NGWCC developed the Institute for the Study of Girls and Women of Color (ISGWC) as the organization’s research division. Through funding, the ISGWC will conduct studies investigating the plethora of issues that continue to affect the lives of girls and women of color and use findings to develop quality programs, initiatives, etc. designed to help girls and women of color reach higher ground.
