CWR’s May 11 webinar focused on how to creatively and persistently continue communication efforts, despite the resistance of targeted audiences. The webinar was presented by Kate McElwee, Executive Director of the Women’s Ordination Conference, a grassroots-driven movement that promotes activism, dialogue, and prayerful witness to call for women’s full equality in the Church.
Since its founding in 1975, WOC’s work and message have attracted attention and sometimes opposition. Of late, WOC has made progress in communicating its message: WOC and its “Let Her Voice Carry” campaign have been included on the Vatican website promoting the 2023 synod. During our May 11 session, Kate shared how WOC is encouraging participation in the synod through the “Let Her Voice Carry” toolkit and online listening sessions and outlined new methods WOC is using to deliver its message. While it is CWR’s policy to refrain from taking stances on political or doctrinal issues, such as the ordination of women, we feel the discussion of such topics as they relate to the role of communication can be beneficial to our members.
All CWR Academy webinars, including this session, are recorded and made available on the CWR member website:
