Catholic Women's League goes to Ottawa

Delegation seeks to build bridges on Parliament Hill

idea is to train Catholic women in leadership skills to take their place around boardroom
tables, in politics, and in business,” said Brown Davidson. (Photo: CCN)
Three members of the Catholic Women's League, hands full with resolutions from their national conventions of previous years, went to Ottawa to connect with cabinet ministers, policy advisors, and Members of Parliament.
“Education is the key, said CWL president Brown Davidson. If we teach women leadership skills, we can do anything!”

She noted how already the CWL provides wonderful leadership training for women in a community of sisterhood where, step by step, one learns how to exercise leadership in a supportive atmosphere where “it’s okay to make a mistake and we’ll help you.”

“I was a stay-at-home mom of four little kids, terrified to speak in public,” said Brown Davidson of her beginnings with CWL. “We want everyone to succeed.”
