Resolved, that the 146th Convention of the Diocese of Newark implement a three year window for all those required to take the Anti-Sexism Training. Extensions may be granted by the Bishop’s office for extenuating circumstances on an individual basis. Those entering the diocese during this three year window will also have to complete the training in this period, or within two years, whichever is longer.
During this phase-in period, completion of this training will not be considered with regard to eligibility for diocesan and church positions, but will be so once this window is closed. The three year period will begin immediately following this 146th Convention, and conclude at the opening of the 149th Diocesan Convention in 2023.
The Anti-Sexism Task Force will offer the training twice each year during this implementation timeframe.
