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 innovative 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.
