That’s why we at the Jewish Women’s Foundation of New York decided to focus our attention and support on women who use their Jewish values and a gender lens to create change in the world – whether in the Jewish community or beyond, in the United States or globally. They are part of a movement – a concerted effort to raise up the leaders this world, our country, and our communities need right now – and our goal is to make sure that they have the support to achieve their bold visions.
Participants will come away from The Convening deeply moved by the stories of women who saw a need that wasn’t being addressed and are now working to solve problems and shift dynamics. With a groundswell of support, we believe these women really could deliver a better world for all.
Jamie Allen Black is CEO of the Jewish Women’s Foundation of New York.
