Chantal Götz – Managing Director

Chantal Götz

“There is a need of urgency to tackle the issue on women in the church in a more profound and just way. Facts show clearly that my generation – but even worse –  the next generation of women are leaving the church at historically unprecedented numbers.  The Church and especially the Vatican will be limited as long as women are not involved at all levels. Through Voices of Faith we hope to inspiring a further dialogue with the Church leadership.”

Chantal Götz is the brainchild and current Managing Director of the Voices of Faith initiative, an undertaking that seeks to enhance the dignity, participation and leadership of women and girls through persistent and good storytelling.

A lawyer by training with a master’s degree in business entrepreneurship, Chantal has 20 years of experience leading the Fidel Götz Foundation, a Liechtenstein-based foundation that supports catholic activities.

“In a single day Voices of Faith enables the telling of true stories of faith, courage, beauty, and joy, told to inspire the world through the voices of women. The event of 8 March is an unparalleled opportunity for the presenters as well as the attendees, and continues to touch the world through online viewing. It is a priceless experience that can only grow in value and relevance for the Catholic Church and the global community.”

“Voices of Faith provides a forum for extraordinarily dedicated women to tell the stories of the people with whom they work: Our sisters and brothers, who often face startlingly inhuman situations around the world. Their testimony and leadership stir us from indifference and call us all to deeper faith, hope and active love”

“Voices of faith could be a key agent in providing Pope Francis and others in leadership with both the vision and tools necessary to carry out his desire for a more incisive female presence in the Church. This would benefit all men and women but particularly women who are poor and powerless and who have been left behind economically, socially and politically. Their voices are not heard and their needs are met with indifference. Yet, all voices count! This Voices of Faith effort could make that a reality by helping set the Church, and in turn, the world on a new course towards justice for all by making the message of women’s full dignity, value and worth a reality, beyond words, right in the heart of the Vatican.”
