Please join us on Wednesday, March 30 at 7:30 p.m. for Kerry Robinson’s lecture, titled “Co-Responsibility: Toward a New Culture of Leadership in the Church,” sponsored by the Center for Catholic Studies at Fairfield University.

New models of leadership and management are emerging in the Catholic Church, calling forth the expertise of the laity in collaboration with the ordained and religious. Predicated on exemplary stewardship of the Church’s often underutilized resources — the expertise of laity and the leadership and decision-making of women and young adults — action is being taken toward a new culture of accountability, transparency, and co-responsibility.

With faith in the Church’s potential and our collective responsibility to call the Catholic Church to greater levels of integrity, Kerry Robinson will address the difficult challenges facing the Church and invite a discussion on a hope-filled path forward when she presents the 15th Annual Commonweal Lecture on Wednesday, March 30, at 7:30 p.m. in Fairfield University’s Dolan School of Business Event Hall. This in-person event is free and open to the public, and will also be livestreamed for virtual attendance. Register for the livestream at fairfield.edu/cs.

Kerry Robinson is a partner for global and national initiatives at Leadership Roundtable, an organization dedicated to promoting excellence and best practices in the management, finances, and human resources development of the Catholic Church in the U.S. She was the organization’s founding executive director and also formerly served as its global ambassador.

Robinson has served as a trustee on many national boards of Catholic nonprofits and academic initiatives. She currently serves on the boards of Saint Thomas More Catholic Chapel and Center at Yale University, the Hartford Bishops Foundation, Albertus Magnus College, The International Business Leadership Advisory Council, the International Catholic Migration Commission, and the International Festival of Arts and ideas.

Robinson is a frequent writer and speaker on the subjects of philanthropy, development, and faith. She has been a columnist for Chicago Catholic and has a blog on spirituality called Love in Ordinary Time. In 2015 the Catholic Press Association awarded her book, Imagining Abundance: Fundraising, Philanthropy, and a Spiritual Call to Service, a first-place prize. She is an alumna of Georgetown University and earned her master’s degree at Yale Divinity School, where she concentrated in ethics.

The annual Commonweal Lecture is sponsored by Fairfield University’s Center for Catholic Studies, in partnership with Commonweal, an independent journal of religious, political, and cultural opinion, edited and managed by lay Catholics.
