Our Story

There are hundreds of 100 Women chapters in cities all over the country, you can learn more about them by visiting


100 Women Albuquerque was founded by Sarah Biondi in 2021. During that summer, Sarah brought together a group of thought leaders in various sectors of the community to brainstorm the overall mission and structure of Albuquerque’s chapter. This group of women, our Founding Committee, was invaluable in helping launch the chapter. We held our first fundraiser in October of that year.
