JWI (Jewish Women International) is bringing a new program to Chicago to help shape a future of equitable Jewish communal workplaces through a national program: “Men As Allies: Leading Equitable Workplaces.” We will be taking an honest and open look at work-place culture and where, when and how issues around gender equity can be addressed and improved. This program was piloted this winter in the Washington, DC region and Chicago will serve as the second cohort.
The program will consist of a series of four 90-minute conversations among men divided into two different cohorts: one for professionals and one for lay leaders. I am honored to be facilitating both groups. The conversations will focus on leadership, the Jewish organizational workplace, and our roles as Jewish men. The goal is to become active allies, advocates and stronger partners in assuring gender equity in our Jewish workplaces.
Meetings will take place at over Zoom on the dates below. All sessions will run from 12:00-1:30pm central time.
Staff Cohort: October 26, November 9, November 23, and December 7
Lay Leader Cohort: November 2, November 16, November 30, and December 14
Participation will be invaluable to the goal of ensuring positive, equitable workplaces that build and nurture the talents and abilities of our staff, our board and our volunteers in Jewish organizations.
