Our Juno Women’s Leadership Residency is a self-led, individual retreat for women of all ages and backgrounds, across leadership and life stages, who have made a commitment to change leadership in their communities and who possess an interest in using a holistic and integrated approach to personal and social change as the foundation for their leadership.

Program: Juno Women’s Leadership Residency

Date Range: May 8 - October 23, 2020

Brief Description: The OWLC has created the Juno Women’s Leadership Residency to support the resident’s overall well-being and nourish the inspiration essential for effective leadership. During this all-inclusive retreat, Juno residents have a unique opportunity to take the time for rejuvenating body, mind, heart, and spirit. Recipients are in residence in our special Juno Cottage, with full accommodations, meals, and amenities, for two nights in May through October.

Application Deadline: We will begin accepting applications January 27, 2020. Applications are accepted and assessed on a rolling basis in the order received until all residency spaces are full. Since there are a limited number of residencies, we encourage you to apply early.

Notification: You will be notified within 6 weeks of receiving your application about whether we are able to offer you a Juno Women’s Leadership Residency in 2020. Retreat offers will be made on a rolling basis.

Other Requirements: Juno residents are asked to participate in our Leadership Questions Project during their residency. The Leadership Questions Project creates connection between residents and helps the OWLC to learn about the issues facing women leaders. Each resident answers three questions posed by the prior resident and poses three questions for the next resident. Juno residents also commit to completing a feedback and evaluation survey following their stay.

How do you decide who is selected for a residency?
Residencies are offered based on an assessment of your application. We take into account your intentions for the retreat, the potential impact the residency will have on your leadership, your leadership stage and professional background, and your responses to the narrative questions.

How will I know I have been accepted for a residency?
Submitting a residency application does not mean you will be offered a residency. If you are selected, you will receive an email offering you residency dates. 

If I am not selected for a residency, is there any chance I could get one later?
If you are not offered a residency, you may be placed on a waiting list. If someone cancels a residency, we reconsider people on the waiting list. If you do not receive a residency in 2020, you may re-apply for a residency in a subsequent year.

What if I still have questions?
