“I couldn’t make this self quarantine, without this website. It’s a lifeline, to real women.” -Marilyn
For women Veterans who feel isolated, online communities offer a great place to connect. The Military Sisterhood Initiative, or MSI, is one such community for women Veterans and female active duty service members.
MSI offers a safe and welcoming online space for military women to connect with their sisters, which is valuable in moments like these when face-to-face meetings are not possible.
As a private online community, MSI serves as a place to congregate, share, learn, grow, give/receive, and – once things go back to normal – find meet-up opportunities with military sisters near them.
By joining MSI, women can:
- Create a profile and connect with other military sisters near them or across the country to build one-on-one relationships.
- Ask for help when they need it and offer support when their sisters are in need.
- Engage in discussions and activities around different monthly topics and weekly challenges.
- Post and find events, resources, and stories relevant to women Veteran growth and empowerment.
Developed and managed by Challenge America, a national veteran 501(c)3 nonprofit, MSI was designed by and for military women. Zaneta Adams – Army Veteran and Director of the Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency – had the original vision for the Sisterhood and helped to put the pieces in place to make it a reality. Challenge America then partnered with Global consultancy firm, Acumen Solutions, to design the MSI platform.
