Annual Legislative Conference
The National Organization of Black Elected Legislative Women’s (NOBEL Women) Annual Legislative Conference (ALC) is the organization’s annual meeting where more than 200 Black women legislators join industry leaders and stakeholders from around the country in dialogue on legislative and policy issues impacting the Black community. Hundreds of attendees from across the country and around the world attend this four-day conference to learn about the challenges and opportunities facing Black America. ALC provides the platform for collaboration and policy development to occur among national, state and local leaders and their constituents through regional forums, national summits, and policy-centered conferences. ALC provides a Black women perspective on public policy with thought-provoking and educational policy forums, community education workshops and policy briefs.
Girls, Gigabytes, & Gadget (3G)
NOBEL Women’s national STE(A)M initiative, Girls, Gigabytes and Gadgets (3G), is an innovative, day-long series of workshops held in member districts throughout the country. 3G is designed to expose young women and girls of color to careers within the science, technology, engineering, arts/design and mathematics disciplines. The initiative also places a specific emphasis on girls ages 8-18 and educates them around social media and technological safety and responsibility. The workshops consists of various trainings, including coding, app development, social media mastery, molecular science, design engineering, and a host of other STE(A)M based activities. All workshops are created to build on one simple message: women and girls aren’t just to be users of technology, but creators, designers, influencers and decision makers as well.
