I am delighted to be taking part in the JLC campaign to support International Women’s Day. As a Trustee of the JLC, Vice Chair of Jewish Care, co-Chair of Lead and a Trustee of Jami, I believe that our community has made significant progress in recognising the value of gender equality at all levels within our communal organisations and in working towards ensuring that we harness the capabilities of so many extraordinary women across generations and denominations. We must be able to our celebrate achievements so far, as well as continue to do more to attract female talent.
This is no time to press the pause button. This is the time to #pressforprogress This is a collective leadership responsibility for both men and women. We could do worse than act in the words of Dolly Parton …‘If our actions create a legacy that inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more, then you are an excellent leader’.
May the best qualities and values of the JLC shine brightly in celebration of International Women’s Day.
