Get Connected with the Women in Leadership Project
Get connected to the Women in Leadership Project. It is a powerful initiative that aims to name and transform sexism in Mennonite Church USA. In 2009 Mennonite Women USA requested an audit of Mennonite institutions (academic, church, missions, constituency groups and others) to take a deep look at the number of women leaders. Joanna Shenk lead the audit. The findings? Widespread lack of women in leadership roles.
Four easy and powerful ways to get involved in the WLP:
1. Blog for the Women in Leadership blog as a way to connect with like-minded women but also see the blog as a platform for being open to hearing new perspectives on what it means to be a woman and a leader in the Mennonite Church today.
