Jewish Women's Fund of Atlanta Agents of Change Training Application
RequiredRequired Question(s)
Jewish Women's Fund of Atlanta (JWFA) promotes social change and expands positive opportunities for Jewish women and girls. JWFA's ACT program builds the capacity of women in Atlanta's Jewish community to become agents of change, developing their skills through exclusive, interactive seminars led by accomplished leaders, activists, and influencers, and providing networking and mentoring opportunities designed to foster a sense of growth personally, professionally and communally.

ACT's pilot class of 20 incredible women was an overwhelming success and a new class of ACT is set to launch this fall and run through spring 2021. Due to the uncertainty surrounding the viability of in-person gatherings, we have decided to place additional limits on the number of participants in this upcoming cohort. Two-hour sessions will be conducted either virtually, or safety permitting, in various locations around Atlanta and will cover a variety of topics, including female leadership in the #metoo era and the power of collective activism. Participants will also be invited to various JWFA programs, meetings, and social gatherings.

This program is open to all women in the Jewish community, ages 25+ who support JWFA's mission to empower women and girls through social change and wish to develop skills to impact their community, share expertise and inspiration, and be part of a network of like-minded women. No previous involvement or leadership experience is necessary.

Aside from the orientation, all meetings take place from 12:00pm - 2:00pm. The following dates are scheduled: September 30 orientation (evening timeframe TBD), October 28, November 18, December 16, January 13, February 10, March 17, April 21, May 19. Please confirm that the sessions work within your schedule before applying. 

Applications must be submitted by Monday, July 31, 2020. Space is limited.
