A Sisterhood of Business and Professional Women

History

Lambda Kappa Mu Sorority, Inc., was founded on January 19, 1937, by Florence K. Norman and a group of twenty-five college educated women, who were engaged in various professions and businesses. The Upper Manhattan Branch of the YMCA in New York City was the site of the deliberations as the women, sincere in the right of their convictions, began to lay the ground work necessary to set in motion machinery for a National Sorority of African American business and professional women.

As an organization of business and professional women, Lambda Kappa Mu Sorority, founded in 1937 and incorporated in the State of New York, represents a cross section of business interests and professional activities. Lambda Kappa Mu members are encouraged to assume leadership responsibility in local civic affairs for home and community improvement and to cooperate with those organizations pledged to principles of human dignity, education, equal opportunity, fair employment practices and housing.

Chapters of Lambda Kappa Mu Sorority, Inc. can be found in major cities in the Northeast from Boston, MA. to Hampton, VA. The Western Region has chapters in the cities of Los Angeles, Long Beach, and San Diego, CA.
