Why a Leading Saints Women's Retreat?

The makeup of the Leading Saints audience is fascinating...
It's no secret that there are more formal leadership callings for men in the church. Which would make one assume that a platform like Leading Saints attract a majority audience of men.

But it's actually just the opposite.

As we monitor the audience demographics of Leading Saints, it is actually women who dominate the audience. There are probably a variety of reason for this, but the most important reason very likely would be a deep desire among Latter-day Saint women to lead and have an influence even if they do not have a formal leadership calling.

The are few (if any) gatherings or experiences women can have where space is created to seek further inspiration and direction related to their own personal leadership mission.

Watch the short clip above to better learn why Leading Saints is offering a women's retreat for Latter-day Saint women.
