The Massachusetts Educational Foundation was founded in 1998, in memory of former SSWBN President, Marion Overhiser. We enable individuals to enhance their lives through educational programs.

As the daughter of two teachers Siiri Morley values her education and the scholarships she received to earn both her undergraduate and graduate degrees. Couple that with the power of women supporting women’s economic development and social justice she has seen throughout her career and you can understand why the Board of The Massachusetts Educational Foundation is excited to host Siiri as the keynote speaker for the April 2012 SSWBN Breakfast.

Siiri’s remarks will touch on her experiences all over the world and in the US participating in and cultivating what she refers to as the “Global Sisterhood.” Join the Massachusetts Educational Foundation Board and learn about social enterprise through the lens of Prosperity Candle and how to become part of the Global Sisterhood supporting women locally and abroad.
