Program sponsors:



Professional development topics:


What are the challenges of being a female leader in a faith institution traditionally dominated by men? How does gender impact how you exercise leadership in your religious tradition? How does gender affect your interaction with other religious leaders?
How does power allocation and marginalization impact your work within your own circles? In our wider Tennessee community, what is the biggest challenge you face being a person of your particular faith? For the benefit of our college faculty: When you yourself teach young people, what works best, from your own experiences as a religious leader, in terms of bringing intercultural understanding about/between/among people of different faiths? How best do we bridge religious divides?
