LCWR – What Does it Mean to be a Leader?

At the upcoming LCWR (Leadership Conference of Women Religious) assembly in Scottsdale Arizona, between August 13 – 16, members will reflect on how leadership in a global community calls us as religious to see the connections between what might otherwise seem like disparate subjects eg racism and climate change.

The schedule for the LCWR’s assembly will include: a keynote address on global religious life, sessions for strategic planning, a panel discussion on social justice, an election, and a leadership award.

But St. Joseph Sr. Carol Zinn, executive director of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious, said the Aug. 13-16 event in Scottsdale, Arizona, should be seen as a cohesive whole.

Sr Carol Zinn, executive director of the LCWR is reported as saying: “We’re trying to be faithful to the question of what does God need from religious life at this moment in time. This is one conversation that’s being entered through different doorways.”

The theme for this year’s annual event is “Imagining leadership in a global community.”
