For well over a century, March 8 has marked International Women’s Day, a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. UN Women’s global theme for International Women’s Day 2021 is “Women in Leadership: Achieving an Equal Future in a COVID-19 World.” This year join Presiding Bishop Elizabeth A. Eaton and a panel of leaders from around the church to hear how the ELCA works for gender justice and equality around the world, especially amid the COVID-19 crisis. Our panelists will also discuss how each of us can work toward an equal future by choosing to challenge the status quo.

Meet our panelists from around the church:
  • The Rev. Elizabeth A. Eaton, presiding bishop of the ELCA
  • Joanne Conroy, president, American Indian and Alaskan Native Lutheran Association
  • Jennifer DeLeon, president, Latino Ministries Association
  • Tamar Haddad, International Women Leaders scholar, California Lutheran University
  • LaShonda Hicks Curry, educator
  • The Rev. Niveen Ibrahim Sarras, Association of Lutherans of Arab and Middle Eastern Heritage
  • Linda Post Bushkofsky, executive director, Women of the ELCA
  • The Rev. Albert Starr, senior adviser, Ethnic Diversity
  • Sister Noreen Stevens, directing deaconess, Deaconess Community of the ELCA
  • The Rev. Teresita Valeriano, Association of Asian and Pacific Islanders
  • Rahel Mwitula Williams, moderator, director, Global Mission Funding

This event will benefit the International Women Leaders program, which provides scholarships and training to established and emerging women leaders from our global companion churches. In honor of International Women’s Day, generous donors will match all gifts to the International Women Leaders program up to $50,000! We hope you can join us to hear more about this exceptional ministry.
