A joint initiative of the Council for Australian Catholic Women, the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference, Catholic Mission and Australian Catholic University.
Leadership for Mission is designed by and for women who are inspired by the Gospel vision of justice, freedom and the dignity of the human person. Across a series of educational and formative encounters, this unique program brings together the leadership experiences of women in the Church within the context of an academic and collaborative learning environment.
Framed by an engagement with scripture, theology, spirituality and leadership, this program encourages participants to reflect on their faith and how it can address the many challenges and opportunities of our contemporary world.
In the company of other women, participants explore how and in what ways their personal mission and vocation can contribute to a vision of leadership for the Church and society that promotes equity, equality, and reconciliation.
This is a two-year, part-time program structured across four residential sessions in North Sydney, supported through ACU’s online learning management system. Airfares, accommodation and meals are provided for. The academic component of this program, A Catholic Theology of Women’s Leadership, consists of a total of 40 credit points (cp), comprising four compulsory units (10 cp each). Upon completion, participants will be awarded a Graduate Certificate in Theological Studies.
This program is open to women aged between 25-35 with diverse personal and professional experiences from across Australia. As this is a graduate program, participants will need to have successfully completed an undergraduate degree in advance.
