The Links, Incorporated was founded on November 9, 1946 by Margaret Roselle Hawkins and Sarah Strickland Scott, two young Philadelphia visionaries. They invited seven of their friends to join them in organizing a new type of inter-city club.
In 1945, Hawkins had conceived the idea of a group of clubs composed of friends along the eastern seaboard and had spent many hours with Scott in thinking, planning and discussing the possibilities of the new organization.
Today, The Links, Incorporated includes more than 15,000 professional women of color in 288 chapters located in 42 states, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of the Bahamas and the United Kingdom.
