Supporting Women of Color in Leadership

March 31, 2015

Austin Channing Brown, writing on the Christians for Biblical Equality website, pens an important article aimed at helping people understand how to support women of color in evangelical spaces.  She writes:

“The very presence of women of color often lays bare how far these spaces (which are generally not created with us in mind) are from modeling the true—diverse—body of Christ.  Much is asked of women of color in these spaces: we are asked to be patient and forgiving, gentle and gracious, long-suffering and kind, present and trusting. But we are all responsible for creating change, so I’d like to shift the conversation a bit and discuss how dominant culture might support the women of color in their midst.”
