Our Mission & Vision

The National Association of African Americans in Human Resources (NAAAHR), a not-for-profit organization, exists to provide a national forum where Black and African American Human Resources practitioners and those who are aligned with our goals can share, gain information and provide leadership on issues affecting their individual careers and the global workforce. By doing this, we endeavor to increase the presence and leadership ability in minority talent at all levels, across all industries, both nationally and globally by facilitating conferences, symposiums, seminars, regional events, career fairs and building strategic alliances.

Our History

Incorporated in September 1998 in the State of Maryland, the NAAAHR was co-sponsored by the Baltimore Black Human Resources Network and the Washington DC Black Human Resources Network. The NAAAHR was formed by a coalition of 17 local organizations of Black and African American professionals and consultants from many cities across the country. We are an association of 4300 members and affiliates and operate over 28 chapters and interest groups throughout the nation. Many of our members affiliate with other professional and trade organizations but find their local NAAAHR chapter a valued resource for shared learning, professional development and personal growth opportunities.
