Wexner Summits: The Network In Action -
The Wexner Foundation started a new alumni program 3 years ago called “Summits: The Network in Action” to bring together top alumni across our programs (WSL, WIF, WGF, WHP) who formed working groups to address major challenges facing the Jewish and Israeli world*. These Summits, which are by application only, have yielded several initiatives that are going strong and looking to go to the next level. We have selected the most impressive projects among them and have invited their core team
members to attend a Summit Accelerator, a one-time gathering in Princeton, NJ, April 7 - 8, 2019. There are 30 project team members coming. In addition, we have invited 30 new participants – also alumni from across our programs. These new “consultants” are joining us in order to help workshop the 12 Summit Projects that have been chosen to participate. Consultants will be expected to serve as thought partners at the Summit Accelerator and join or continue to support (in some way) one or many of the projects presented.
*Our 3 Summits to date have been convened to address the following issues:
(Re)Imagining the Israel-North American Jewish Community Relationship (launched 2016)
Social Justice (launched 2016)
Civil Discourse (launched 2017
