A core function of the Roundtable is to convene our organizations and help them learn from each other and from experts in the field. We organize regular in person trainings on topics of interest.
So far in 2017 we have hosted a Fundraising Training and Racial Justice Workshop on the West Coast.
In 2016, we hosted a Board Development Training for executive directors and their board chairs. We also went to the Bay Area for a training and day of community building.
In 2015, we hosted a Fundraising Training, in which over 60 fundraising professionals gathered to learn new skills and perspectives from Ruth Messinger with American Jewish World Service and Idit Klein with Keshet, as well as from each other.
In 2014, we hosted a training on:
Internal Organizational Structures led by Elizabeth Hampton Brown at the Management Center and Aliza Mazor from Bikkurim. It was geared for staff who manage others and focused on how to delegate work, how to set organizational goals and approaches for setting organizational culture; and
Grassroots Organizing 202 led by Meir Lakein from JOIN for Justice. This track was aimed toward experienced organizers - people with at least four years of experience and who have received some sort of formal training.
The Roundtable also works to build capacity of our organizations by:
organizing peer coaching initiatives to provide staff the opportunity to coach and be coached by a peer who works at a different organization yet faces similar professional challenges
organizing network-wide webinars or conference calls on topics of interest
