When was the following suggested?
“Within the Church, changes in four key areas would create increased opportunity for women and girls:
1. Improve women’s access to decision-making forums.
—Examine meetings from which women presently are excluded. If women were to contribute, would it help the decision-making process? If so, open such meetings to women’s auxiliary heads or other relevant women leaders at the ward, stake and general levels of the Church.
—Within the corporate offices of the Church, employ more women in a greater variety of positions.
—Develop and emphasis leadership training skills for women so that they can more effectively participate in meetings.
2. Increase access to ward callings and duties. Several ward callings and offices have evolved into priesthood callings. Such callings should be reevaluated to determine if priesthood is a necessary prerequisite. Where it is not, women should serve in those offices equally with men.
3. Improve women’s influence over their own organizations.
—Create more recognition and communication between women’s auxiliary presidents and Church women by having them travel more widely.
—Revise and streamline the decision-making process. Eliminate layers of decision-makers now required to approve curriculum, programs, etc.
—Support the newly institute regular meetings among three women’s auxiliary presidencies.
—Provide management training for women’s auxiliary presidencies in such areas as communications, delegation, planning, running effective meetings, creative problem-solving
—Institute salaries for all General Board members
—Improve Relief Society lessons by emphasizing teacher development, developing themes rather than lessons, and creating flexibility of choice for what lessons are appropriate for each ward.
—Expand or restore a definition of compassionate service that includes larger, more long-term projects such as hospices, home care for the elderly, etc.
4. Develop greater visibility for women’s activities.
—Give equal space in ward newsletters to women-related activities.
—Give equal recognition to girl’s youth activities.
—In sacrament meetings, have equal numbers of men and women speakers, and men and women prayer givers. End informal practice of men being the closing speaker. Have women speak on scriptural issues.
—In General Conference, have more women visible and participating, and speaking on scriptural issues.
—Develop support for more women’s conferences that include attention to a range of issues, including leadership training.”
So for the suggestions with which you agree, how are we doing?
