CABE Women Discussion

Christian Women in Leadership

Led by Nola Leach of CARE

 13 Christian women at various stages in their working life and journey of faith met to share the joys and challenges of being a woman in leadership in business and the third sector on Wednesday 3 September.  A few key things which we covered were:

  • The challenge of being a woman in leadership is not always about a lack of confidence and a need to prove ourselves. It can sometimes be about how to deal with leaders above us who can’t deal with our skills and self-confidence.
  • There is a balance to be struck that when we talk about ‘being ourselves’ that it’s as Ok to be a ‘ballsy’ woman as it is to accept that if we are not we but can still be a good leader.
  • While we all have an idea of what a good leader looks like in theory we know we can never live up to it ourselves and those who lead us never do either. We have to be honest with ourselves and with others in celebrating strengths and weaknesses.
  • While this is so for all women in leadership as Christian women there can be particular expectations on us but also we have a different type of role model in Jesus.
  • Working in a Christian organisation or where we are known to be a Christian can also add to the pressures.

Some possible topics for future a CABE Women discussion are:

  • Is it Ok for Christian women to be ambitious?
  • Is Career planning Ok for Christian Women?
  • How to handle our boss.
