Culture of Belonging Kickstart Session

November 16, 2022
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM


A one-hour session that introduce the power of Culture of Belonging as a framework to transform Jewish organizations and communities.

A Culture of Belonging (CB) ensures everyone in a group or organization feels seen, valued, and part of something bigger. Belonging for a few happens by chance; Belonging for many requires intentional design, and new habits and norms at every level: board, volunteers, staff, community members.

Kickstart participants will learn Culture of Belonging language, principles, and practices to apply to challenges they experience in their organizations. Come for a refresher on Culture of Belonging fundamentals; invite colleagues and lay leaders to expand the knowledge in your organization or synagogue.

Kickstart Sessions are for:

  • 473K Workshop participants who want a CB foundation
  • Professional and lay leadership: Jewish schools, camps, synagogues, JCCs, Hillels, start-ups, and other communal groups
  • Clergy and educators
  • Board and committee members and volunteer leaders
  • Entrepreneurs and change advocates
  • Donors, funders, development professionals
  • This session will be facilitated by Wendy Verba, Federation Culture of Belonging Lead.
