All “CWFL” Updates
In May, the U.S. State Department released its latest annual International Religious Freedom (IRF) Report. The report analyzes the state of religious freedom around the world and highlights countries in which religious persecution is especially severe. The report also demonstrates the importance of IGE’s work in key countries.
IGE is thrilled to announce the release of our 2020 Annual Report, “Voices of Religious Freedom”. Throughout the report you will read quotes from our partners in governments, civil society, and faith communities across the globe, as well as from supporters and members of the IGE team who have all witnessed our work and impact first-hand.
IGE’s Center for Women, Faith & Leadership (CWFL) launched its 5th Hybrid Fellowship and 2nd Distance Learning Fellowship. The Hybrid and Distance Learning Fellowships are one-year programs for women of faith seeking to advance their leadership through skill building, as they advocate for the vulnerable and marginalized. This brings the direct impact of CWFL’s Fellowship program to 86 women of faith across 32 countries worldwide.
On December 15th, 2020, IGE’s CWFL marked the graduation of its first-ever Distance Learning Fellowship Cohort. The Distance Learning Fellowship has expanded the global reach of CWFL’s successful flagship fellowship program to participants in countries that would otherwise encounter barriers in traveling to the United States.
