Full course description
This series is open to ALL HILLEL PROFESSIONALS. You do not need to participate in all five sessions, though you are welcome and encouraged to.
These sessions will not be recorded in order to create an environment in which people are comfortable asking questions and sharing their own experiences. Please be prepared to put your camera on, utilize a working microphone, and sit in a private place if that is your preference.
In the final session of the “Elevating Identity” series, we will dedicate time to processing lessons learned in the prior four and strategizing about how to implement them on campus. If you have attended at least one of the “Elevating Identity” sessions, please join us for this opportunity to reflect, share ideas, and prepare to move forward in our work to engage, elevate, and empower “the every”.
This session is one of the sessions in our 5-part series Elevating Identity: Strategies for Engaging the "Every" focused on identity and inclusion in an effort to move towards our organizational goal of reaching and engaging “every Jewish student”. When we say “every”, we mean it, but often struggle with putting it into practice. The overall goal of this series is to better prepare each participant to engage all students through an increased understanding of our communities’ diversity, how our own identities impact our work, and how the narratives we are familiar with dictate our course of action on campus.
