We are very pleased to present a report of the Lasallian Women’s Needs Assessment survey findings to identify what women in the Lasallian Family need in order to fulfill their commitment to mission called for by the Secretariat of Association and Mission in November 2021. Over 4,500 women from all Regions participated.

What follows is a report of the findings for CIAMEL, the General Council, AIMEL delegates, and all in the Lasallian Family. We want to thank all of the women who participated in the survey and all Lasallians, Brothers and Partners, who supported its distribution. We also want to thank the research team from St. Mary’s University of Minnesota, Sue Hines, Ed.D., Elizabeth E. Seebach, Ph.D., L.P.  and Mary Catherine Fox, AFSC, Ph.D. for their countless hours of work and support. The story of Association and the Lasallian Family continues to unfold and it is graced with the wisdom, commitment and contribution of women who are a part of it.

May this be another step in ensuring their voices are heard.
