Details

Women of the LWF Council have historically gathered to build a platform to engage and share wisdom with the Communion work related to gender justice and the women’s network.

This is the third meeting of the full Council elected in the Assembly (2017-2023), therefore the aim is to follow up on Assembly resolutions, including experiences of women in the ordained ministry, Gender Justice Policy implementation, efforts to overcome gender discrimination, sexual and gender-based violence and tools for women in leadership positions in the member churches.

The council women are key leaders in building bridges between the women in the networks and the decision making body, namely, the LWF Council. A panel open also to men in the Council, will close this program on June 12.

Departments:Department for Theology and Public Witness with the Office of the General Secretary

Program: Gender Justice and Women’s Empowerment
