C4W Member Profile: Kim Wright Brown

KimBrownWhat is your profession?  Associate VP Development, Carolina Youth Development Center.

What do you enjoy doing outside of your career? Spending time with my husband Dean and family, entertaining, travel, being a good friend and I love watching college football (Gamecock Fan)!

How long have you been a member of the Center for Women?  I just joined as an individual. I have had the good fortune of being involved with my previous company over the past couple of years and would not miss being a member.

What inspired you to become a member?   I have been inspired, supported and encouraged by many of the women I have met at the C4W over the past few years.  The Women & Power series is exceptional and the opportunity to meet and get to know the talented and amazing women in the Charleston business community is not to be missed. 

What kind of impact has the Center for Women had on you? There are so many opportunities to get involved, learn, or share with other women.  The connections I have made at C4W have helped in all areas of my life, personal to professional.  It is a tremendous resource.

How has living day-to-day as a woman affected you?  I had an amazing mother, who taught me I could do anything, be anything I wanted.  She instilled in us all to believe in ourselves and be good to yourself.

What kind of message would you like to send out to women who are trying to succeed in today’s economy?  Dream BIG! Help each other…I love a quote that was in Time Magazine several months by Taylor Swift…she said

“There is a place in hell for women who do not help other women.”

Reach out, connect with other women (and men).  It is a tougher road alone.
