A little about Marisa

Marisa Renee Lee is a cross-sector leader dedicated to engaging the private sector to help solve social challenges. Lee most recently served as the Managing Director of the My Brother’s Keeper Alliance (MBK Alliance), a nonprofit born out of President Obama's call to action to address the barriers to success that boys and young men of color (BYMOC) disproportionately face along the life path.

After taking a year off to help care for her mother who battled Multiple Sclerosis and breast cancer, in 2006 Ms. Lee began her career at Brown Brothers Harriman as an Associate in the Commodities banking group. While at Brown Brothers Lee specialized in coffee and energy products.  In 2007, while working  at Brown Brothers, Ms. Lee founded The Pink Agenda, a breast cancer non-profit, in honor of her mother Lisa. Almost a decade later, The Pink Agenda is now a national organization of young professionals committed to raising money for breast cancer research and direct care service programs in partnership with The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
