Comings and Goings: Richard Wexler; Nicole Nevarez
Nicole Nevarez, a Jewish educator, trainer and facilitator, and most recently New York Director for Moving Traditions, has been named Director of B’Kavod, a grassroots, multi-pronged initiative dedicated to ending gender abuse and harassment in the Jewish communal workplace.
B’Kavod, an initiative of The Good People Fund and the Jewish Women’s Foundation of New York, has fostered and developed two specific projects – Safe Respectful Workplace training, and Infoline, which serves as a place for individuals to both report and receive support around abuse-related incidents.
In addition to coordinating these channels and resources, the Director’s office is a clearinghouse to make available to anyone in the Jewish world additional resources to guide them towards securing the professional support they need.
Nevarez has held multiple leadership and department head positions for Jewish organizations and nonprofit theatres. In addition to her work with B’Kavod, she provides independent consulting to mission-critical organizations to support them in reflecting their mission and values in internal processes and culture. She also teaches, facilitates, presents and coaches privately on a variety of social emotional topics, including teen wellness, Jewish values, women’s empowerment, career development, self-discovery and more.
