ACT: Agents of Change Training

Jewish Women's Fund of Atlanta's Agents of Change Training program (ACT) 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.

“Be the change you wish to see in the world!” -Ghandi

This familiar quote serves up powerful inspiration, but the question remains – How exactly do you “become the change?”

Jewish Women’s Fund of Atlanta is proud to launch the inaugural year of the Agents of Change Training (ACT) program, designed to give women in the Jewish community the necessary tools to use their voices to truly BE THE CHANGE – to get involved in causes they are passionate about and make a difference in impactful and meaningful ways.  Through exclusive, interactive seminars led by accomplished leaders, activists, and influencers, ACT will challenge and engage this 1st cohort, while providing networking and mentoring opportunities designed to foster a sense of growth personally, professionally, and communally.

This is your chance to participate in an innovative leadership and advocacy program presented from a uniquely Jewish, female perspective.

The pilot class of ACT will launch in fall 2019 and run through spring 2020. Two-hour sessions will be conducted 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.

The 2019-2020 application period has now closed. Please stay tuned for updates and announcements coming soon.

ACT is open to all women in the Jewish community 25+, regardless of their previous involvement or leadership experience.
