The World Jewish Congress held it’s first in-person event on Tuesday as part of its newly-established Women of Impact speaker series.  The evening gather, held at WJC’s New York offices, brought together more than two-dozen female leaders to seek ways to further engage and elevate their voices on issues of relevance to the Jewish community.  

Those in attendance heard from Dalia Feldheim who recently published Dare to Lead Like a Girl, a roadmap for surviving and thriving in the corporate jungle. Feldheim, who is also the Founder of Flow Leadership Consulting and has a proven track record in the marketing field encouraged the group to never shy away from the issues they feel passionate about, declaring, “Emotions are a sign of passion and not a weakness – and passion is a super power!”  

Also addressing the leaders in attendance, WJC’s Chief Development Officer Sara Friedman reinforced the organizations commitment to working towards advancing women’s rights in the diplomatic and communal spheres.  

For years, the World Jewish Congress has worked to highlight the role of women in faith-based communities. In March, the organization held a side-event in connection with the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women entitled Empowering Women: Corporate policies and practices inspiring Faith-Based Organizations to explore ways leaders can create a more inclusive and equitable work-culture to combat gender discrimination.
