Call for Candidates for the 2021 Catholic Women’s Leadership Program
We are pleased to announce that we are accepting applications for the 2021 cohort of our Leadership Program, scheduled to begin in April 2021 facilitated by the Providence School of Transformative Leadership and Spirituality, Saint Paul University, 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 13-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 in April 2021; a five-day intensive component is planned for May 30, 2021 to June 3, 2021. This is scheduled to be through ZOOM, and you will be expected to participate in every session. All other modules are online and consist of videos, readings, personal reflections, and discussion forums.
The final face-to-face residency component is scheduled for May 1 to 5 2022 in Ottawa. To assist with your planning, an announcement will be made by January 8, 2022 about whether this will be online or in person.
Details of the content of the different components and timelines can be found on the website at www.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 process by November 20th, 2020 which can be found at www.cwlfcanada.ca/our-leadership-program.
