The Spanish version of the Program for Discerning Leadership was carried out with 24 participants (11 women, 13 men) including 19 religious, 2 Diocesan Priests and 3 Laypeople.
Thanks to the superb preparation and facilitation by our faculty from ESADE and Deusto University in Spain, as well as the enthusiastic and deep engagement of the participants, the program was a great success.
During the course, three key speakers participated in three different moments along the week to enrich the content of the course: Fr. General Arturo Sosa SJ, Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, the President of the Pontifical Council on Culture, and Austen Ivereigh, biographer of Pope Francis.
The program caught the attention of many news outlets, including L’Osservatore Romano and the Vatican News, to name a few. We include those two pieces here in note, both in Italian and English.
The group will meet again on December 14 until the 18th, to run the 2nd Module of the course.
