Building Our Future Together
2023 SRE Network Convening
June 6-7, 2023
Bohemian National Hall, NYC
We are a Jewish network of over 160 organizations that is rooted in a shared commitment to safety, respect, and equity-for all. We inspire meaningful change in workplaces and communal spaces by bringing people together to address gender-based harassment, discrimination, and inequity. Our work is focused on building community, research & learning, and strategic community investments, using an intersectional lens of gender justice.
Environments free from harassment and intimidation based on gender or sexuality.
People treated with civility, courtesy and professionalism.
People dealt with fairly, equally and given the same opportunities for participation, membership and advancement.
"It is not incumbent upon you to finish the task, but neither are you free to absolve yourself from it."
(Rabbi Tarfon, Pirkei Avot 2:16)
A network that reflects the diversity of identities and needs of its membership through its composition, programming and resources.
A network that serves as a catalyst for building the kind of long-term movement needed to create a safe, respectful and equitable Jewish community and larger society.
A network that, through its thoughtful and innovative grantmaking and the power of its membership, is able to multiply the impact of its community investments.
What We Believe
We must live up to the values within Jewish tradition that call upon us to raise our voices and lead where our community and society have fallen short.
Our community must address the structural inequalities and power dynamics that have allowed harassment and abuse to take root.
Organizations and their leadership must hold themselves and each other accountable for enacting the changes we need to see.
