How to Make Small Shifts That Add Up to Audacious Hospitality
Facilitator: April Baskin, Director of Audacious Hospitality, Union for Reform Judaism.
Organizations and congregations can make simple, practical shifts that can have a large impact on current and potential members. Using principles taken from Jewish text as well as best principles from the fields of diversity, inclusion and equity, we will look at resources in the Audacious Hospitality Toolkit that can inform and support these efforts. Additionally, we will frame our discussion in a deeper understanding of how to move from an inclusion to an empowerment mindset.
