Twenty-seven percent (or 516 of the 1,942)
of individuals employed by the general
agencies of The United Methodist Church
are racial/ethnic women (see Table 1).
While racial/ethnic women do hold some of the
executive, professional, and managerial positions
in some of the general agencies, most of the positions
they hold are in the administrative and clerical
support area. In fact, 59% (or 303) of all the positions
held by racial/ethnic women in the church are
administrative and clerical positions (see Table 1).
