Message From Our Executive Director
2019 was a phenomenal year and we expect 2020 to be even better!
Hello! My name is Carolyn McKecuen, President of the Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Foundation®. I am also a business development and communications expert. I played an integral role in the creation of the annual Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day® and am actively involved in its celebration every year.
Throughout the many years I have thoroughly enjoyed devoting my life to creating opportunities for others. My husband, George McKecuen, and I cofounded McKecuen Consulting, Inc. Through McKecuen Consulting, Inc., I apply my expertise in business development, communication, and technology to support and expand nonprofit organizations and micro-enterprises all over the world. I have been the recipient of numerous awards in recognition of my efforts, including the Presidential Award for Public/Private Support in Microenterprise and the very highly prestigious MacArthur Genius Award.
In addition to the work I do at the Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Foundation®, I continue to consult with businesses, organizations, and nonprofits to devise strategies that will make them more effective, more efficient, and help them make a greater impact on the world. Among the places I have worked, it is an honor to include MacArthur Foundation Fellows and the State of North Carolina.
