Making Her Story: Carolyn Miles

This hour, Save the Children U.S. President and CEO Carolyn Miles joins us. We talk about her decades-long career and learn about the unconventional journey that led her to the Fairfield-based NGO.

It’s the latest conversation in Connecticut Public Radio's “Making Her Story” series, featuring prominent women with ties to the state. 

Join the conversation on Facebook and Twitter.



Darden School of Business: Logging Miles to Save Children - "When the family moved back to the United States, to Connecticut, in 1998, a Darden alumnus introduced Miles to a staff member at Save the Children. She took a marketing position with the organization, applying the experience she had gained at American Express and through her Asian startup to help the nonprofit with its direct-response television and direct mail campaigns, bringing in new donors. In 2004, Miles became Save the Children’s COO and executive vice president, and in September 2011, she moved into her current role as president and CEO."

Lucy leads Connecticut Public's strategies to deeply connect and build collaborations with community-focused organizations across the state.
