What We Do

Using three initiatives—The Collective, The Network, and The Convening—we identify transformational Jewish women leaders today; nurture a community of global change-makers; accelerate the impact these women can make in the lives of women and girls; and embrace smart risks and bold ideas.


The Collective is an active, ongoing community wherein visionary entrepreneurs and leaders collaborate and offer each other strategic support and advice. some in The Collective both gain from, and contribute to, the whole. Members of The Collective have access to a wide range of offerings, including professional development, funding, leadership opportunities, community events, and more. This suite of year-round opportunities is geared toward creating ongoing learning and connections that provide collaborative support.


The Network is how, supporters, activists, innovators, and initiates create the foundation for a pipeline of talent prepared to take the reins and effect change in our communities. As participants in The Network you will learn from experts and leaders about emergent issues in the field, leverage your donation to make more of an impact, and make investments to support women.


The Convening provides Jewish philanthropists and social entrepreneurs and leaders with an annual opportunity to network, learn, and celebrate our work together. The Convening will include inspiring keynote speakers, participatory breakout sessions, spirited grant making, and plenty of time for one-on-one meetings with like minded and like-hearted change-makers. The Convening is for progressive funders ready to think about philanthropy differently and innovative implementers ready to be challenged and energized.
