About

Women in Faith brings together beginning and mid-career professional women of different faiths and spiritual practices to gain understanding about each other and the role that faith plays in their lives. Through ten evening sessions over the course of eight months, participants come together over food, facilitated dialogue, and learning to explore commonalities and differences between their faith traditions. 

Women in Faith also includes an experience of another faith to gain a fuller understanding of the other. As a culmination of the Women in Faith Fellowship, participants engage in a service project of their creation built around a common issue of concern.

Applying for and participating in this program is completely free.

Who Should Apply

The ideal participant is a professional, self-identifying female of faith/spirituality in the beginning or middle of her career.  She is highly motivated to expand personal networks and increase connections with different faiths, and committed to and actively engaged in promoting inclusion and diversity.
