About Us




On December 2, 2017, The Greater Omaha Chapter chartered with a coalition of fifty socially conscious, progressive women committed to our mission of advocacy on behalf of Black women and girls, under the leadership of Dr. Idalene Richmond Williams, Chartering President. The ceremony marked the official recognition of a new day in the life of NCBW in Omaha, NE. Our Re-branding and re-focusing on our advocacy mission positions the organization to have an even greater impact, a transformational impact – at the very time when we are needed the most.

NC100BW Greater Omaha Chapter is committed to being an effective change agent in the Omaha Community, promoting our mission to advocate on behalf of black women and girls to promote leadership development and gender equity in the areas of health, education and economic empowerment, to raise awareness and promote solutions that can lead to change.


On March 13, 2001, a small group of women motivated with a desire to make a difference in Omaha met at the home of Princess Cullum to discuss the most significant challenges facing Omaha and how the Coalition of 100 Black Women could help to solve these challenges. This group grew to 13 by early summer 2001.


The National Coalition of 100 Black Women, incorporated officially recognized this group as an Organizing Group in the Winter of 2001. By Spring 2002, the Interest Group grew to 27 African-American women, who were concerned with the professional, economic, and educational growth of Omaha, Nebraska. This newly formed group was officially Chartered as the National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Incorporated Omaha Metropolitan Chapter on May 3, 2003, under the leadership of Princess Cullum.


Since the initial chartering, we have been a vital part of the Omaha community fabric, shaping and changing lives in service to women of color and their families and our community. Over the years, Omaha Metropolitan Chapter prospered, implementing several initiatives and programs, including Money Matters, Women of Color in Leadership Summit and Legacy Awards Luncheon and Gourmet Gents Event.

As a viable advocacy organization, we will carry out our mission and vision by collaborating with other organizations, developing programs and initiatives that positions us to be action-oriented, advocacy driven and providing solutions which leads to change.
