Update from the Ms. Foundation for Women

The Ms. Foundation for Women and Anika Rahman, the Foundation’s president and CEO, announce that Ms. Rahman will be leaving the Foundation to pursue other professional interests.

During her time with the Foundation, Ms. Rahman made significant contributions from which the Foundation will benefit for years to come. Among other initiatives, her commitment and drive led to the successful implementation of a strategic plan for the Foundation, enhancing its core strengths, and advancing its critical mission. She brought creativity and dedication to her role and has been essential in raising the Foundation’s visibility in positive ways with its donors and innovation-partners in the field. The Foundation is grateful to Ms. Rahman for all of her efforts and wishes her the best in her future endeavors.

Ms. Rahman has kindly agreed to assist in transition until her departure later this summer. The Foundation will conduct a search for a new president and CEO, and plans to appoint an interim president and CEO to serve in that role throughout the course of the search process.



The Ms. Foundation for Women fights to eliminate barriers for every woman in the U.S. For 40 years, we have worked tirelessly to secure women’s rights and freedoms with a special commitment to building the power of low-income, immigrant and women of color. At our core, we are advocates giving a voice to women to elevate their most pressing issues. We’re continually investing funds, time, expertise and training in more than 100 trailblazing organizations nationwide to secure a better future for ourselves, our families and our communities.
