“Who run the world? Girls!” We all know the phrase that Beyoncé made ever popular. What does it mean to Marjorie Harvey? Well, if you’ve ever heard Comedian, Author, Radio/TV Host, and Philanthropist (and much more) Steve Harvey speak, you have heard him speak very highly and fondly of his wife, Marjorie. And rightfully so. This power couple is giving back! Not only are they movements by themselves, but they are forces to be acknowledged together. They run The Steve & Marjorie Harvey Foundation, which has the mission to “provide outreach to fatherless children and young adults, by promoting educational enrichment, one-on-one mentoring and global service initiatives that will cultivate the next generation of responsible leaders.”
Under their joint foundation, Marjorie oversees a program called Girls Who Rule the World. The focus? “To enhance the development of young girls and provide a forum to expose them to the benefits and the importance of positive self-image, responsible personal conduct, respect for self and others, educational achievement and cultural enrichment.” The program uses mentoring to connect with the participants and even brings in industry leaders to speak to the young girls about how to be the best versions of themselves. These are the leaders of tomorrow and so that better way to develop their skills, esteem and effective communication than through an organized program dedicated to those very things?
