  • The NAABW 2015 Sisterhood Conference was a beautiful experience. I loved seeing such a variety of women come together to connect with and inspire each other. I look forward to participating and speaking again!

    Natasha Fontaine
  • I am extremely blessed to have had the opportunity to be a part of the National Association of Adventurous Black Women’s (NAABW) inaugural Sisterhood Conference. As a speaker, I was able to share my experiences and also learn from the women that were present. My experience at theconference has motivated me to get back into public speaking and to continue finding ways to empower women. The warmth of Sharell and her team was infectious throughout the whole conference, and played a major role in helping the women present be open. I am looking forward to future NAABWconferences!

  • First and foremost I would like to congratulate NAABW on their first conference. I had the pleasure of attending NAABW’s first annualconference in September of 2015. This was an amazing experience as I left inspired and encouraged. Each speaker was very transparent and relatable. I love everything that NAABW exemplifies. As their mission statement states “Our mission is to empower Black women to expand their worldviews through sisterhood, global community service, and cultural exposure.” They are accomplishing their mission at an accelerated rate. Keep pushing towards the mark and inspiring our African American community.
