2019-20 Listen & Engage Program
NCJW Miami’s Listen & Engage Program is a year-long leadership development program for Jewish women ages 22-40. The program is a mirror of NCJW national’s civic engagement program, Our Vote is our Voice, and it will engage and educate a minimum of fifty Jewish women leaders, ages 22-40, on issues of social justice, particularly voting rights. Participants will have access to and opportunities to learn from an amazing group of Jewish women leaders in our community, from business, law, government, and non-profit sectors.
Nominations for the Listen & Engage Program Leadership Committee were accepted from Jewish organizations, affinity groups, community charities, organizations where Jewish women are volunteering and from within NCJW Miami.
The Leadership Team consists of eight women who will participate in trainings and seminars on leadership and advocacy, the importance of voting, and the tools to design and lead individual projects to educate and engage our communities. Each member of the leadership team will chair a project in the fall - recruiting and managing volunteers, and organization and follow-through of a voting-related project.
About the Participants
The leadership and participants reflect a diverse group in terms of religious affiliation, profession, education, race, LGBTQ status, gender identity and social justice experience and interest.
Listen and Engage is partially funded by the Greater Miami Jewish Federation.
