Good Shepherd NGO marks 10 years 4
The Episcopal Church of the USA, Office of Women's Ministry,
Clare Nolan has been an invaluable resource to us all at the Episcopal Church USA.
She has been a speaker on several occasions to groups here as she did at the beginning of the UNCSW 2005 at the UN. Clare graciously agreed on short notice to give a very useful orientation to the UN to our 85 women as to how we, as an NGO, could get the most benefit from our time at the UN. Her practical advice is well respected by all at our office.
Clare also served as consultant to our Committee on the Status of Women as they were trying to prepare a report and resolutions to our elected body for the Episcopal Church, the General Convention, on the issues of trafficking as they affect women. She is extremely generous with her time and advice, sharing resources freely.
