Learning in Community
As exemplified in the Interfaith Women's Residency, we believe in creating spaces where women scholars and activists can gather together to learn skills to develop their voices and reflect on inter- religious issues and topics. Participants will meet monthly for 3 hours to complete a curriculum that consists of diverse topics such as gender, leadership, conflict resolution and having a public voice.
Each month, Fellowship participants will gather in community to strengthen their identities as interfaith thinkers, leaders, and women.
The topics for each month's dissuasion and workshop is listed below:
September: Introductions, Personal Mission, Understanding Faith Identity
October: Gender and Leadership
November: Facilitation Training
December: Anti-Racism/Intersectional Social Justice Training
January: Interfaith Training and Literacy
February: Conflict Resolution – Interpersonal and Internal
March: Public Speaking and Writing
April: Leading a Wider Community - Interfaith Action
Each fellowship participant will be awarded $250 dollars to design and implement as small scale project during the Spring semester.
The program is housed at Union Theological Seminary and the monthly meetings will be held in the Interfaith Women's Residency, in McGiffert Hall. Participants will meet in the common room of the Interfaith Women's Residency.
