ABOUT


The National Council of Women of America is a New York City based think-tank whose members, scholars and keynote speakers influence civil society and public policy. 

Our work, following the framework of the United Nations "Planet 50-50 by 2030: Step It Up for Gender Equality" agenda presents a full range of diversity, inclusion and innovative solutions to demystify the process of gender parity and economic empowerment. 

We are dedicated to the discovery of solutions to strengthen opportunities for women in America.
