Kim's passion for women's empowerment and gender justice grew through her ten year affiliation with Anglican Women's Empowerment, both as an officer and serving on the board of directors. In 2006 Kim created AWE-net, a program to enhance partnerships between US women and Anglican delegates to the UN Commission on the Status of Women. This partnership created a fabric of global women through shared experiences. In 2011 Kim created Women's Global Mission at her parish which she continues to facilitate. This program has been developed into the diocesan wide, Women's Global Mission Network. Kim is a past Senior Warden of her parish and currently sits on the Executive Council for the Episcopal Church in Connecticut.
