As a forward-looking organisation, we are not blind to the issues facing Black women outside of the business environment including in their own community. There are two issues in particular that we are proud to throw our support behind and to help those in need.

Through the events we run, the speakers we engage with and the support we give our members, the two issues below will be a key factor in what we do and, more importantly, how we can help and support those affected by them.


We hope you will join us in promoting these causes and sharing our belief that we are all stronger when we look out for each other.

Mental Health


We all have mental health, in the same way we all have physical health. Both of them can suffer, but mental illness is harder to see and is so often misunderstood. That is why the NBWN has embraced mental health awareness.

Domestic Violence


Almost one in three women under the age of 60 will experience domestic abuse in her lifetime and two women a week are killed by a current or former partner in England and Wales alone. These are startling figures and we need to tackle them head on.
