The ability to learn is the most important quality a leader can have. Don’t wait for the right conditions. All you need for your growth is available to you in this moment

This is a conference of Catholic Sisters only

The conference will offer the sisters an opportunity to reflect and understand their concrete living out of their religious consecration as the foundation of a life of mission as religious women leaders.

The sisters will be able to:

Internalize the aspect of spirituality and leadership as well as find ways to live integrated lives.

Root their understanding of consecrated life in their Congregation’s and the Church’s teaching.

Order their lives as consecrated women and their experiences and learning of leadership in the light of their specific congregational charism as a response to the Church and the world’s challenges today.

Professor Mbure’s research focuses on media influence on self-perceptions in young people, especially around issues related to appearance ideals of the black body in the media. She also interrogates historical influences of media representations of gender and race in post-colonial contexts. Her current research projects examine the effects of skin tone ideals in the media, opportunities for and resistance to such ideals through new media by post-colonial and Diaspora communities, and the impact of convergence media in creating opportunities for reflexive cultural practices and social change. Her research has been published in Women and Language, and Journal of Broadcasting and Electronic Media.

Her scholarship has been recognized by a number of awards and grants. In 2010, Professor Mbure received the John D. Bies International Dissertation Research Fellowship awarded by the University of Missouri Graduate School.
