On February 1st, 2021, the National Association of Black Administrative Professionals (NABAP) launched and made history. The organization is first of its kind, helping to prepare Black administrative professionals to excel, elevate and build their way to the top of the leaderboard.
There are thousands of talented Black individuals in administrative positions who are seen as gatekeepers to the nation’s largest corporations, but they are truly the unseen and the unheard. NABAP will give them a voice and support these individuals, by providing mentorship, access to professional development, and a sense of community.
NABAP’s team consists of experts who are committed to Black leadership growth in every industry. Two membership options are available for anyone who wants to join the organization and take their career to the next level.

Speaking about the launch of NABAP, CEO & Founder Nadine King said, “When corporations are asked why their executive teams and boardrooms are not displaying diversity, the answer has always been there is not enough black talent. NABAP, my organization, wants to change that. High-performing admins and executive assistants with degrees are talented and equipped to lead. NABAP will develop and cultivate these talents for better opportunities. This is our future.”
Administrative professionals like executive assistants, human resources administrators, chief of staff, and program coordinators play a vital role in a corporation’s affairs. Research shows that despite having 12% of the US population, Black people only hold 3.2% of top leadership roles in large corporations. Among fortune 500 CEO positions, Black people account for only 0.8%.
NABAP is working to ensure these numbers improve for Black people in the coming years. The organization’s board and the team comprise professional men and women with decades of experience working with top corporations. They are ready to nurture, develop, and cultivate talented Black administrative professionals for a better experience and opportunity to reach their career goals.
Black admins seeking professional development can join by selecting any of the two membership levels. The Build membership level is for one year, including newsletters, professional certifications, discounts to conferences, networking, and scholarship opportunities to support continued education and training. The Elevate membership includes all the benefits of the Build membership but with more values. Members have access to monthly group mentorship sessions, exclusive live webinars, volunteer opportunities, and they can create local chapters of NABAP.
