A professional development opportunity specifically for the superheroes serving small-sized Jewish nonprofits (and regional offices of larger ones)


Chicago’s Jewish Innovation Space
4700 N. Ravenswood, Suite B
Chicago, IL 60640

Small organizations are critical to building a dynamic and inclusive Jewish community — yet they face unique institutional challenges. That’s why this professional development series is designed to address the important challenges faced by the multiple-hat-wearing staff of smaller organizations. Brought to you through a partnership between SketchPad and Spertus Institute’s Center for Jewish Leadership.

Participants will learn to:

  • Develop and advance their institutional culture
  • Increase the efficiency of their teams
  • Spend more time doing the things they love

In three engaging, interactive sessions, let Dr. Gail Berger give you the tools to foster workplace happiness and build high engagement — for individuals, teams, and throughout your organization.

Session 1
March 7 from 12-1:30 pm
Creating and Sustaining a Dynamic Institutional Culture

Session 2

Session 3
May 22 from 12-1:30 pm

All sessions include a kosher lunch. Participants will receive the Job Crafting Workbook during the third session.
