“IGE has given me the incredible opportunity to work with strong women from around the world. We value the chance to be in a safe place where we can discuss the hard questions and grow together. The Center for Women, Faith & Leadership has given me the platform to dig deep into my love of diversity and culture, while being grounded in the mission for religious freedom. Even in our differences, there is a beautiful thing we all have in common and that is our desire for all to live freely and believe freely. Barriers should not scare us; they should challenge us.”
