The women bishops steering committee, set up after the General Synod debate in July, met for the first time this week.
The committee considered a first draft of a measure, and amending canon as requested by Synod, over two days of discussions in Coventry which concluded today.
It also looked at the possible shape of a declaration from the House of Bishops, as well as a mandatory grievance procedure.
The discussions were "serious, honest and constructive", a spokesperson for the group said.
