One of our original ring members, Linda, who blogs at Against a Brick Wall, is now director of student recruitment at Phillips Theological Seminary, and is asking for our help. She writes:
I agreed to help our DMin committee collect some input from women clergy on the formation of a new specialization in our program. The new specialization will focus on Women in Leadership, with a broader focus of investigating how to support and encourage women in all areas of leadership within in the church. We are wanting to see who might be interested in such a specialization and if so, what would make such a program attractive to them. We've put together a brief survey using Survey Monkey that we will distribute in a number of venues.
I am wondering if the Rev Gals would consider posting a link to the survey on the RevGal blog, inviting members to take the survey. I really do think this might be a program that is of interest to others within the webring, but we would also highly value the input from this group of women and those who support them.
I'm delighted to share the survey link with the ring, and to ask a couple of questions for our own comment thread here:
1) As a woman in ordained or lay ministry, what has been the most important thing you've learned about leadership?
2) How have you been encouraged?
3) What challenges have you faced as a woman leader?
