It was a pleasure to talk with Dr Carolyn Woo on her recent appointment as President and CEO of Catholic Relief Services (CRS). She discusses the way ‘everything in life has changed’ from her previous situation as Dean of the Mendoza School of Business at the University of Notre Dame. Her background as a business education leader has taught her that integrity and success are not trade-offs, but success stems from integrity. From her perspective as a Catholic and a woman leader, she describes the challenges and hopes for her organization working in international relief and development in 100 countries in a fast-changing environment.
