Catholic Women’s Leadership Program

Application Forms are now available for the 2023-24 Catholic Women’s Leadership Foundation Program. The Certificate program, facilitated by the Providence School of Transformational Leadership and Spirituality at Saint Paul University (Ottawa) will run from May 2023 to June 2024, with both face to face and online courses. The application deadline is December 15, 2022.
Over the past few decades, we have seen a growing need for Catholic women to fill leadership positions – roles where they are able to share their values, gifts and talents in powerful and meaningful ways.
The Catholic Women’s Leadership Foundation, in partnership with the Providence School of Transformative Leadership and Spirituality at Saint Paul University in Ottawa, has developed a yearlong leadership certificate program to help Catholic women strengthen their leadership skills in an environment which integrates faith and spirituality.
Our Way Forward
With a new strategic plan under development, the Foundation is looking forward through collaboration, education, and supportive networks enabling an influential voice for Catholic women in Canada.
The Catholic Women's Leadership Foundation Program affirmed and encouraged me as a woman of faith in the church today. The diversity of ages, careers, orientation in our church commitments, and physical location in Canada, provided a rich opportunity for growth together. At the end of the year, I feel deeply grateful, somewhat wiser, and more excited for and aware of emerging possibilities. Thank you to the fantastic lead facilitators and the support of the CWL Foundation for this deeply enriching opportunity that indeed offers a transformative way of being in the world.
