Cultural Navigation Series

Mindful businesses and organizations recognize that success today is tied to how well we navigate the cultural interactions we have. In a world of increasing awareness of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), we seek to promote our commitment to DEI, expand our understanding, and avoid missteps. Join April Powers and Kiyomi Kowalski, co-founders of JewbianPrincess.com, for a high level, in-depth training to prepare you for the world as it both is and is becoming.

This course is perfect for anyone who wants to get along with other human beings. Whether you are an individual or a team, this training explores the skills to have more successful interactions with people who look, think, and work differently than you. Especially for professionals and business and organizational leaders.

The four session course includes:
Developing Empathy, Uncovering Unconscious Bias, Emotional Intelligence, and Cultural Navigation. Each of these courses will offer free online assessments for your own self-evaluation.

TAE Discusses Race

Monday, June 15 at 7:00 p.m.

Join Rabbi Diamond and fellow TAE members in an open discussion about race in our country.

The discussion will be based on the article ‘Believe us’: Black Jews respond to George Floyd protests, in their own words. Black Jews in US call for more solidarity, understanding and support from their coreligionists and to use shared history of oppression for empathy, not denying pain of others.

This is a TAE member event.
The meeting link will be emailed to Temple members. Members can also email Cindy Leshtz at cleshtz@adatelohim.com for the meeting link.
