Women Vision SC

Who are some of South Carolina’s leading women in the fields of business, government, public service, and the arts? What was their personal journey to success and what common themes helped them develop a vision for achievement? 

Women Vision SC podcasts will feature a different interview each Tuesday for 11 weeks, beginning April 30, 2019. Women Vision SC is an SCETV cross-platform initiative recognizing women of achievement from around the state on radio, television and online.

The interviewees were selected from nominations from our listeners and viewers.  Their stories will live on for young people through our education portals. The producer/host and Project Director of Women Vision SC is Linda O’Bryon, a former President & CEO of SCETV and South Carolina Public Radio.
