Statement on Diversity and Inclusion

We strive to ensure our Board of Directors, staff, members, and candidates reflect the diversity of North Carolina. We are committed to increasing the number of women of color in elected offices in our state. We are proud to have helped elect women of color and women from the LGBTQ community as Featured Candidates from across the state since our founding in 1997.

We are excited about the future and our role in helping to make NC a great place to be a woman.
