Mission Statement

Mission

Step Up Women's Network is a national non-profit membership organization dedicated to strengthening community resources for women and girls. Through teen empowerment programs for underserved girls, women's health education and advocacy, professional mentorship and social networking opportunities, we educate and activate our members to ensure that women and girls have the tools they need to create a better future.

Step Up is on the cutting edge of women's social philanthropy. The organization's strength stems from our members' ability to leverage their personal and professional skills and relationships to give back to the community. Our programs are designed to engage women in a way that inspires a life-long commitment to responsible, philanthropic involvement encompassing hands-on volunteer work and leadership opportunities. "Invest, Involve and Inspire" is our motto.

Founder's Story

In the summer of 1998, my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer.

Kaye Popofsky Kramer and her Mom

Being the first in my circle of friends, or so I thought, to be faced with losing a parent to this disease, a group of thirty women gathered in my living room to give their support and talk about what we could do to help in the fight against breast cancer. It became clear from the dialogue that whether or not the disease had directly affected us each, we all felt the need to take a more proactive role in our community, our wellness, our professional lives and our personal dedication to making a difference. It was time for us to take action and create an entity that could impact our future - and Step Up Women's Network was born.
