This workshop will help congregations that are engaging in the clergy placement process to better understand how implicit bias unknowingly informs our organizational processes and transform the ways in which we create meaningful Jewish experiences for people of all backgrounds. Participants will also learn how to prioritize equitable recruitment and hiring processes resulting in a more diverse applicant pool and increased equity in our communities.
This workshop is a partnership between the URJ, American Conference of Cantors (ACC), & the Central Conference of American Rabbis (CCAR). This training is specifically for members of ACC & CCAR clergy placement committees. In addition, please feel free to also attend if you are a hiring manager or on other hiring committees, as much of the information will still be relevant.
