Women’s Ordination Conference (WOC), the most visible advocacy group for women’s ordination into an inclusive and accountable Catholic Church, is currently looking for people who are willing to serve on our Board of Directors. Nominees should be passionate about ordination justice advocacy and speaking out against all forms of oppression in the Roman Catholic Church and society. 

We welcome people of all abilities, socio-economic backgrounds, and migration statuses. People of color, young adults, LGBTQIA people, and people in underrepresented communities are strongly encouraged to apply.

We are looking for nominees with a diverse range of skills, and particularly those who may have experience with: community organizing; non-profit leadership; mujerista and womanist theology; development/fundraising; or a legal background. However, most importantly, nominees should bring a passion for women’s ordination to a renewed priesthood. 

WOC Board members work together to set direction, ensure resources and provide oversight for the organization. We meet three times a year (usually twice in person and once virtually, but at the moment all meetings are virtual). In between meetings, members collaborate on committees and projects on a regular basis. Members serve for a three year term. To read a full description of the responsibilities of board members, please visit here.

If you would like to be considered for nomination to the Board or would like to nominate someone, please complete an online application below.  Nomination applications are due April 12, 2021 with personal interviews conducted in May. The new Board member term begins in the fall of 2021

We encourage all our members and friends to give this opportunity to serve prayerful consideration! Help WOC continue to act in courageous and prophetic ways to create a discipleship of equals in the Board itself, in the organization at large and in the patriarchal Roman Catholic Church.
