UCC Women’s Survey

UCC Women’s Survey



Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey prepared by the Women’s Table of the United Church of Christ. It is intended to gather information from women in the UCC about the issues and concerns you most care about, are engaged with, and for which your faithful responses make a difference in the world around us. We are grateful for the staff of the UCC’s Center for Analytics, Research & Development, and Data (CARDD) who will conduct the survey.

What is the Women’s Table, you ask? Good question! Since January 2019, a group of women convened by the Rev. Traci Blackmon has been meeting to discuss how the UCC can address and advocate effectively for gender justice and the issues that impact women’s lives. In the past several years, due to the need to maintain fiscal sustainability, the National Setting has reduced staff in many areas of ministry once vibrant in our collective lives. Distinct attention to women’s ministry and gender justice is gone.

Yet as you know, the struggle for justice continues in all settings of our church and we recognize and give thanks for all the work you continue to do to make our world a better place for us all.

We are not yet certain of the future of the Women’s Table but we are cognizant that as a denomination which has provided a great deal of leadership and advocacy on gender justice and for women in ministry within ecumenical and interfaith partnerships, that we need to find ways to remain visibly engaged, accessible, and resourceful on these matters. This survey, sent out to a diverse cross-section of women in the UCC, is designed to help inform next steps. What is on your minds and hearts matters to us.

Again, we cannot thank you enough for taking the time to offer your feedback. We look forward to hearing from you and to reporting our findings. Your responses will be strictly confidential and anonymous. It will take approximately 10 minutes to complete the survey. Please have your responses included by Friday, Dec. 11, at 11:59 pm EDT.

This survey is also available in Spanish online. In the right-hand corner of the survey change the language from English to Spanish. Esta encuesta también está disponible en español en línea. En la esquina derecha de la encuesta, cambie el idioma de inglés a español.
