Executive Team & Voices of Faith Consultants


Executive Team

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.

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.
