CWN Women Leadership Programme

“… The Church’s two-thousand-year history has truly experienced the “genius of woman”; from the heart of the Church there have emerged women of the highest calibre who have left an impressive and beneficial mark in history”… The life of the Church in the Third Millennium will certainly not be lacking in new and surprising manifestations of “the feminine genius” (John Paul II, Letter to women 1995)

You have a unique & special genius; an important role to play in your home, society and Church. You know that your feminine genius is needed in the Church and the world. You understand the challenges that the church faces in the 21st century and you feel called to make a difference.

The CWN Women Leadership Programme is a part-time programme that would help you to get more clarity on your God-given vision, build your leadership skills and find your unique place in the world. You will get practical help to translate your vision and skills into a sustainable project or organisation so that you can make a real difference.

It is for women who feel called to serve in leadership positions within the Church, Society & Business.

The Programme consists of...

6 Taught Leadership Modules

You get access to a new video module every fortnight. Every module requires a completed coursework which will be submitted to your tutor for feedback. All coursework have to be completed in order to graduate the programme successfully. Modules are:

  • Authentic Femininity: Woman's identity, roles, challenges & victories.
  • Women & The Environment: Church, Society & Family.
  • Identity, Mission and Leadership style.
  • Leadership Development & Transformation .
  • Leadership Method & Systems
  • Research & Project Management.​
Leadership in Practice Project

The second half of the programme would be spent in developing a real life project based on your chosen specialism. This helps you to put in practice what you have learnt on the first part of the programme and ensures that you are already a leader in practice.

A Dedicated Tutor

Get feedback on your taught modules as well as your practical project from your dedicated tutor and mentor. You will have the support you need to navigate real life leadership issues.

Monthly Group Discussions

Get feedback and network with your colleagues every month via an online platform.

Choose Your Specialism

You will have the opportunity to choose your area of specialisation; Church Leadership, Community Leadership, Business Development and Marriage & the Home. Your practical project will be based on your chosen area of specialism.

Our Leadership Programme is based on the New Eve Method - a natural human ecology model rooted in biblical theology as well as Catholic teachings on authentic femininity & spirituality.

But the hour is coming, in fact has comewhen the vocation of woman is being achieved in its fullness, the hour in which woman acquires in the world an influence, an effect and a power never hitherto achieved. That is why, at this moment when the human race is under-going so deep a transformation, women impregnated with the spirit of the Gospel can do so much to aid mankind in not falling.”

(Pope Paul VI, 1965).
