Description: As more organizations want to identify, develop, and retain more women in their leadership teams, we will look at practical ways to make progress in our particular scenarios and organizational cultures. We will explore issues such as 1) traditional, theological or practical impacts, 2) unintended barriers and unrecognized opportunities, 3) how expectations about men and women leading together be different between home office leadership, field staff, supporting churches. As we identify some of these issues, we become free to think creatively about embracing processes that more accurately reflect our goals and help us accomplish our mission.
