Call for Candidates for 2020 Cohort
We are pleased to announce that applications are now being accepted for the 2020 cohort of the Catholic Women’s Leadership Foundation (CWLF) Leadership Program, to commence in May 2020 at the Providence School of Transformative Leadership and Spirituality, Saint Paul University, in Ottawa.
The program is open to all Canadian Catholic women, from all walks of life, who have a genuine interest in making a difference in their communities and places of work.
A candidate must be a Catholic woman, at least 21 years of age, demonstrate oral and written English language competencies, have a genuine desire to cultivate her gifts of leadership, and have made a previous contribution to her community in some capacity.
The Program is a thirteen-month Certificate program with an ongoing mentorship once the course work is completed. Throughout the Program, participants will be guided by professional facilitators from Saint Paul University. The Program is specifically designed to integrate faith and life, personal and professional leadership development. Spirituality and a Catholic faith perspective are the foundation of all activities; prayer and reflective practice are core elements integrated throughout the Program.
The Program will have an introductory get-to-know-you online module; an initial, five-day, face-to-face residency component in Ottawa; a 10-month online component, consisting of videos, readings, personal reflections, and discussion forums; and a final, four-day, face-to-face residency component in Ottawa. Details of the content of the different components can be found at cwlfcanada.ca/our-leadership-program.
If you are or know of a Catholic woman who wishes to be a transformational and influential leader, we invite you to complete the application, which can be found at cwlfcanada.ca/our-leadership-program.
