Board of Directors & Team
Founder & Chair, Board of Directors
Kristen Newsome, M.Ed
I started My Sister's Keeper Success Institute because every day that girls don't have the confidence or advocacy to reach their potential, and combat gender and racial stereotypes, the world misses out on their creativity, innovation, and problem-solving. Equity and Inclusion of women of color in STEM with their resilience, creativity, and brilliance is what's missing in this global technology age.
-Kristen Newsome, MSKSI Founder
Executive Board of Directors
We have a responsibility to encourage, mentor, and guide girls in our community to see all their possibilities. MSKSI is an organization that lives this premise and I am proud to serve with them.
Keith Newsome, MPA

Every time I volunteer with the girls makes me realize how much brilliance and potential is here to be a blessing to the world!
