ECTE General Assembly and Inaugural WiTE Event

Following the General Assembly of the European Council for Theological Education (ECTE) 15 professional and passionate women in theological education (WiTE) from 11 countries shared 22 precious hours.

Initiated by ECTE’s Accreditation Director Carmen Crouse, and with the full and emphatic support of the ECTE Board, this event also bolstered the number of women attending the ECTE General Assembly from May 7-9, 2023, at a beautifully located hotel on the island of Cyprus.

The women represented most of the key stakeholders in theological education:

  • Academic/administrative Staff
  • Chief Executives
  • Curriculum Design Specialists
  • Employers
  • Faculty members
  • Governance members
  • Quality Assurance leaders
  • Researchers
  • Students

The goals for this first event were:

  • building awareness of female colleagues of each other within the ECTE network and beyond
  • evaluating and establishing the level of interest by WiTE for a potential network
  • establishing a space for personal and professional development
  • exploring pathways into the future for WiTE-events and activities
