The Vancouver branch of the International Anglican Women’s Network (IAWN)-Canada
has an exciting day planned for Saturday October 13th 10am -3pm (arrive at 9:30am) at St Margaret's, Cedar Cottage.
The title of the day is:
Women in Leadership: Breaking Down Personal Barriers
We are going to use the MBTI (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator) as a tool to help us identify what may be holding us back individually from taking on leadership roles. All those involved will be invited to take the MBTI test in advance of the day and the results will form the basis for the work we do together. Even if you have done this test before it is always interesting to take it again and see what it tells you about where you are at this point in your life. The test will either be sent to you by email or by post.
We will have a limit of 25 participants and are particularly hoping to work with some of the younger women in the diocese (under 45). The day will be led by Margaret Jonsson, a trained MBTI administrator, and by Marnie Peterson and Tasha Carrothers from the Synod Office and the Diocesan Leadership School.
If you would like to take part, or to find out more details, please email Ellen Clark-King
. Also please think of any women you know who might benefit from this day - lay or ordained - and invite them to consider attending. There will be a cost of about $30 to cover the testing and the expenses of the day. Coffee and muffins will be supplied and participants are invited to bring a bag lunch with a little extra to share.
