A rare and unique opportunity – The Australian Jewish News
Following two years of virtual program delivery, Australian Jewish Funders (AJF) will bring together 70 leaders from diverse Jewish Australia for the inaugural Launchpad Leadership (LPL) alumni retreat.
“I am so thrilled to finally be able to connect in person with all of the influencers the LPL has attracted. “How indulgent it is to focus completely on ourselves, our personal growth…and on eating,” said Leah Boulton, CEO and founder of Pathway Melbourne.
Thanks to the support and vision of Charles & Lynn Schusterman Family Philanthropies (USA), the Herrmann Rich Fund and HaKhel (a collaboration between HaZon and the Israeli Ministry of Diaspora Affairs), the retreat will take place in the rolling hills from November 20. NSW Southern Highlands. For three days participants will learn, connect and explore new ideas and opportunities for cross-denominational collaboration.
The program is designed with plenty of time for interactive activities, masterclasses and workshops such as impact measurement, community building and storytelling, as well as peer networking. Each morning participants will be able to participate in running groups, personal training sessions, Krav Maga, yoga or meditation led by their fellow teammates.
The keynote address will be delivered by inspirational Hannah Divine – leading author, disability and women’s rights advocate – who will be in conversation with co-chair of Philanthropy Australia (and Launchpad’s own) Amanda Miller.
AJF Community and Innovation Manager Rebecca Adler said, “One of the greatest achievements of the program has been to encourage collaboration across organizations and cities while strengthening Jewish life. Now with in-person retreats, there is no doubt that Participants will walk away with even stronger connections and partnership opportunities that will benefit the Australian Jewish community for years to come.
