Within the next five to seven years, 75 to 90% of Jewish nonprofit organizations will be faced with the daunting challenge of replacing their retiring CEOs and executive directors. This may prove difficult as organizations are struggling to attract and retain talent.
Why are great leaders for Jewish organizations so hard to find? Opinions vary. Some think we don’t do a good enough job preparing the next generation of leaders to take the helm. Others think the culture of traditional Jewish organizations is not attractive to top talent. Both mindsets are right.
JCPSC would like to help tackle this issue by offering a forum to address the challenge regarding the Jewish non-profit professional pipeline. Please join us on:
