The Women's Center for Education and Career Advancement (WCECA) was established in 1970 as a project of the National Council of Negro Women, Inc. to meet the challenge of providing marketable skills to women of color who held marginal and tenuous places in the paid labor force. For over four decades the Women's Center has upheld its commitment to improve the economic self-sufficiency of women, especially the underserved and underrepresented.
Through innovative technological resources, job readiness programs, career services, and financial literacy programs for young women, WCECA has provided over 40,000 women with the tools to successfully become full participants in today's economy. We educate and advocate for socially just public policies and opportunities that lead to the empowerment of women as well as the betterment of their lives and the lives of their children.
