Summary: The SRE Network works to ensure safe, respectful and equitable Jewish workplaces and communal spaces by advancing gender equity and addressing sexual harassment, sexism and gender discrimination. The ethical standards of Jewish tradition call upon each of us to work towards a more just and equitable world. To that end, SRE brings together organizations, funders, individuals and experts to help create lasting, systemic change. The role of SRE is to serve as a catalyst and resource to support, coordinate and amplify change in individual Jewish organizations and communal spaces, as well as to accelerate a broader cultural shift. SRE is currently a fiscally sponsored project of New Venture Fund (NVF) and is led by an Executive Director, supported by a team of consultants, and overseen by an Advisory Board of communal leaders.
