The Collective is a cohort of entrepreneurial leaders who use their Jewish values and a gender lens to address intractable issues facing women and girls in the United States, Israel, and around the world. The Collective is a platform for Jewish women who have founded or run organizations to have their work amplified; increase their visibility; grow their professional skills and networks; and interact with generous donors. The Collective, Cohort Three represents women from diverse backgrounds—leaders who are lawyers, council members, educators, activists, scientists, and rabbis; leaders who represent the breadth of Jewish spirituality and practice; leaders who come from diverse backgrounds and from communities around the world. Each is visionary; they set an example for others to follow, inspire a shared vision, look for opportunities to change the status quo, foster collaboration, and celebrate the accomplishments of others.

The Jewish Women’s Foundation of New York is committed to nurturing The Collective members as individuals and as leaders, which in turn, will create more effective organizations and revolutionize the field of social change efforts.
