Click for Staffing Application

Staffing is a powerful and sacred experience. Women witnessing and holding space for other women is an ancient and honored tradition. As a staff member, you help to create and hold the container for other women to experience the transformational power of the Woman Within Weekend.

Women who staff are rewarded with many gifts in return — continued growth, learning new skills, deep connection with other women and the energy that flows when women come together to form a circle of healing.

Staffing is a commitment — in time, energy and money. If you are interested in staffing, review the staffing policy and requirements.

Staffing Requirements

  1. Completed the Woman Within Weekend.
  2. Completed Woman Within/Empowerment Circle Training. This requirement is waived if training or Woman Within/Empowerment Circles are not available in your area.
  3. Completed Woman Within Staff Training (formerly called One Day Staff Training) for all staff positions.
  4. Completed Woman Within Skills Workshop (formerly called Women Empowering Women -- WEW) is required for nurturer, small group leader, assistant team leader, team leader and facilitation team member.
  5. Committed to continued personal growth. It is critical that each staff member commit to doing her individual work apart from the Woman Within Weekend so that she can be fully present and available for participants in the program.
  6. Payment of $150 staffing fee. Arrangements can be made for payment over time if a woman is unable to pay the entire staffing fee by the deadline. Contact Mary Ann Armour, Director of Training, at for more information.
  7. Attend the Celebration following the Woman Within Weekend. Out of town staff are exempt.

Staffing Policy & Process

  • The Woman to Woman Midwest staffing committee selects staff from a pool of qualified applicants.
  • Staff selection is based on a number of factors including qualifications to fill leadership roles, relationship with a woman who is particiapting in the Weekend, prior staffing experience, certification in CPR and First Aid, service to an organization in the Woman Within Network, and number of times available to staff in a year.
  • Each staff applicant is notified by email no later than 30 days prior whether she has been confirmed to staff or is placed on an alternate list in the event additional staff are needed.

Woman Within welcomes all women and prohibits discrimination based on race, color, gender, national origin, age, religion, disability, veteran's status, sexual orientation and gender identity.
