Gender Summit 1

August 20, 2018

The first Gender Summit launched in 2018 and gathered 27 ecumenical and evangelical leaders to strategize a more equal pulpit in Asian North American and Latinx congregations. We created an Action Team to implement the ideas that came out of the summit.

Background

We organized the annual Gender Summit over three years with the goal of empowering Asian American women and Latina faith leaders in ministry as part of ISAAC’s project “Imagining A More Equal Pulpit.” The Gender Summit was funded by a three-year Louisville Institute grant awarded to ISAAC in 2017.
