Chief Executive Officer
Step Up

Delores Morton is CEO of Step Up, the nonprofit that guides girls, and those who identify with girlhood, to their success. Under Morton’s leadership, Step Up supports high school girls and young women through age 29 in becoming confident, connected and career-focused through free mentorship programs.

Morton has more than 25 years of experience designing and leading creative enterprises that make a lasting difference. In her first year as Step Up’s CEO, Morton masterfully navigated the nonprofit through pandemic challenges to adopt a new five-year strategic vision and expand Step Up’s mentorship programs to girls nationwide. She also unveiled programs for young women ages 18-29, marking the first time the organization offered services for those who already graduated from high school. A new program for young women is Power Talks, a multi-year partnership with Kérastase designed to close the confidence gap through mentoring.
