In Whose Image? Being Leaders and Being Women
Wed 3 May 2017, 13:00 – 14:00 BST
At our City Women lunchtime event, Bishop Anne will explore the pressures on women to look and speak and behave a certain way, the place of role models, and what it means to find a right and authentic confidence in “being ourselves”.
Bishop Anne has been Bishop of Aston since 2015 and is the first woman bishop in the Diocese of Birmingham. She was previously the first female vicar in the thousand year history of a St Albans city centre church in Hertfordshire, first female Residentiary Canon of Manchester Cathedral, first female chaplain of the University of Derby, and has notched up so many other “firsts” along the way that she’s had plenty of time to reflect on the challenges of forging new territory as women in leadership. In her spare time she loves walking, theatre, reading poetry, novels and theology, and describes herself as something of a contemplative as well as a “want-to-make-it-happen” person.
This event will be accessible to Christians of all denominations and to women of all faiths and none.
Either book a free ticket and bring your own lunch or book a £3 ticket with a light sandwich lunch included.
