MSK Women

Programs designed to fit the
unique needs of women to
help them live their best
lives possible.

Beyond high school and college, we never stop needing help and support. Whether socially or via civic programs, MSK Women is dedicated to reaching women everywhere of all ages. Black women specifically have their own set of challenges and barriers to overcome at the intersection of race and gender. Each of the aforementioned barriers by themselves creates their own complex social issues. Together, these barriers create the basis for the work we do and the driving force behind the programs we seek to establish.

Our Purpose


Women of color will be the majority of all women in the US by 2060.

MSK is founded on the principle of “lifting as we
climb”. This phrase was adopted because far
too often, some women act like crabs in a
barrel. In other words, as one sister gets to the
top of the barrel of success, others pull her
down because of jealousy, fear of her success,
or facing the shortcomings in their own lives. It
is our belief that if all girls and women were
equipped with the same tools to be successful,
instead of giving in to jealousy and fear of the
successful woman, they will learn to celebrate
her, take note of her success and together,
build a community of empowered, supportive,
sisters on the road to being better women.
