WSF_FeaturedLower_Partners

Our Partners

WSF_FeaturedLower_PartnersWomen of Spirit and Faith is interested in connecting with organizations also engaged in the wonderful work of gathering women together and in the development of leadership from a spiritual perspective.

Our experience over the past few years tells us that there are many diverse women’s and interfaith organizations across the US and Canada … and that we really don’t know much about one another and the creative work that each is doing. We sense that together we might be able to discover new ways to be more effective and powerful so that the voices of spiritual women can be magnified at this important moment in human history.

We invite you to join us in the excitement of this discovery by becoming a Networking Partner with Women of Spirit and Faith. We see this as the beginning of a potential self-organizing Networking Resource to connect us that we may better serve our individual missions and discover new collective opportunities.

Contact us at womenofspiritandfaith@gmail.com if you would like to learn more about becoming a Networking Partner.
