The Keshet Leadership Project is a year-long multi-phased program that gathers, trains, provides resources for, and supports Jewish institutions to become more inclusive of LGBTQ individuals and families. The Project kicks off with the Keshet Leadership Summit, a dynamic, experiential day-long program designed to build the capacity of individual leaders; because institutional change doesn’t happen overnight, the Project also includes follow-up support and training that helps Jewish leaders turn their LGBTQ inclusion action plans into reality. The Project is designed to impact the programming, policies, and organizational culture of Jewish institutions by supporting the leaders of those institutions to make sustainable change.
In over a decade of training and supporting Jewish instructions toward greater inclusion, Keshet has found that a single training alone does not result in lasting change. Thus, the Keshet Leadership Project consists of 4 phases: assessment, learning, planning for action, and follow-up.
