Commission on Status & Role of Women


COSROW Conversations

The Florida Commission on the Status & Role of Women presents COSROW Conversations, a webinar series exploring the triumphs and challenges of women (clergy & lay) in ministry.

In this first installment, host and Florida COSROW member Rev. Charisse Jones (CEO of Grace + Grit Unlimited) sits down with Bishop Charlene Kammerer (Retired), Bishop Sue Haupert-Johnson (North Georgia Conference), and Rev. Dr. Sharon Austin (Florida Conference Episcopal Nominee). 

Beyond their different stages of their episcopal journeys, these sisters are trailblazers in other very powerful ways. Today we will listen in at the keyhole as they share from their experiences of life, love and ministry and their angst, hopes and expectations. We will learn how we can support each other and thrive together.
