200+ women launch new community engagement group

Our inaugural Women United event was a tremendous success - 200+ in a full-capacity room at the Goodwill Opportunity Campus, ready to strengthen the community we all love!

After an opening welcome by Women United's two co-chairs, Betsy Mack and Lois Ingland, the audience heard from Debra Plousha Moore, system chief of staff and EVP for Carolinas HealthCare System.

Women United Kickoff

WBTV anchor Molly Grantham not only hosted a table, she captured Debra's inspirational remarks in wonderful fashion:

- Whatever it is you do, don't do it in a shallow way.
- Go deep.
- If you're a teacher, go deep into education.
- If you're in banking, go deep into finance.
- If you're in journalism, go deep into informing.
- Your voice means something. Don't be silent.
- Appreciate everything. Send thank you notes.
- Start out with your gut. It's right. Then get your facts.
- Give back to your community.
- If it doesn't affect your neighborhood or child, it's still your city.
- Diversity in thought always makes for better results.
- Results matter.
- Women: Don't feel like you're in competition with one another.
- No matter your age, help others and learn from others.
- Be relevant. (Learn new things, even if it's LinkedIn or Twitter.)
- Be accessible. (Respond to emails, messages and calls.)
- Be authentic.
- Be transparent.
- Be generous.
- Be direct. (GOD I LOVE THIS ONE.)
- Be inspiring.
Great night, United Way of Central Carolinas. Thank you for bringing the 200 of us together. After listening to Debra, I think we all want to go save the world.
