A BIT OF BACKGROUND INFORMATION
Inspired by her own experiences, Dr. Nwando Okafor formed Soeur Foundation in order to unite women through the power of sisterhood and to impact the future of women’s earning power in the world. The overall mission is to narrow the gender gap in STEM careers, entrepreneurship, and productivity by providing enrichment to young girls and women.
Dr. Okafor was blessed to have a strong network of supporters around when she acclimated from boarding school in Nigeria to high school in the United States. Those times came with many challenges and there was always room for more support. Dr. Okafor and her sister beat many obstacles by sticking together and being each other’s support system. Collectively, they have gained much of their success as physicians and in entrepreneurship by working together as a unit.
Their powerful bond of sisterhood is implemented in the mission of Soeur Foundation. The Okafor sisters are visual proof of female change agents who are working together for the success of women in the following generations.
