Women's Global Connection

Promoting leadership and learning of women locally and globally through collaborative networks and partnerships

Sister Dorothy Ettling and Sister Neomi Hayes founded Women’s Global Connection in 2001 under the sponsorship of the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word and in partnership with the University of the Incarnate Word to further education and research in the global community.



The WGC online community provides many forms of dialogue, information sharing and learning. As in any community, the strength and power of Women’s Global Connection comes from the contributions of the participants. We welcome you to become a member of our community.



WGC also organizes annual immersion trips to partnering countries to promote understanding of different cultures aimed at building respectful collaborative relationships across the globe; and to provide education for grassroots women around the world as a means of promoting women’s leadership and community development.



WGC is a Ministry of the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word, located at the Generalate offices in Brackenridge Villa. Office hours are 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM – M-F.

For information on ways to support and participate in the WGC activities, please call our office at 210-828-2224 or visit our website.
