THE JDC GLOBAL LEADERS INITIATIVE

The Global Leadership Initiative (GLI) is an unparalleled, invitation-only leadership platform for enterprising young Jews, in their late 20s through 30s to serve on JDC’s Board of Directors, launched in 2016.

Through a 2-year board service term, GLI members gain experience and knowledge to become effective lay leaders and advocates for global Jewish issues and JDC.

GLI is an initiative of JDC Entwine and seeks to develop a critical mass of young leaders who can make a meaningful contribution to the organization.

GLI includes the following integrated components:

A Training Platform

Learn from JDC’s century of experience and explore current global trends, challenges, interventions and opportunities.

A Leadership Opportunity

Serve on JDC’s Board of Directors for two years.

A Peer Network

Become part of a cohort of highly educated, networked young leaders committed to global Jewish issues

GLI is limited to leaders invited by nominations only. For any questions, please fill out an inquiry form here.

GLI has been generously supported by Arlene Kaufman and Sandy Baklor.
