AJC ACCESS Summit
The ACCESS Summit at the AJC Global Forum is an unparalleled opportunity to network, train and activate young Jewish global leaders. The ACCESS Summit will take place Sunday, May 11 - Monday, May 12, 2014 in Washington D.C.
Building on the momentum of the groundbreaking ACCESS Summit 2013 that brought international Jewish activists together from across the political spectrum to tackle Israel’s delegitimization and build bridges with the Latino and Muslim communities, the ACCESS Summit in 2014 will focus on positioning emerging Jewish activists, and select thought leaders from around the world, to engage on some of the most critical issues affecting the Jewish and global communities today as well. Attendees will also have the opportunity to take part in hands-on skill building workshops designed to prepare activists and volunteers for effective advocacy and community engagement. Stay tuned for additional details coming soon!

Global Jewish Diplomacy 2.0
What does diplomacy look like in 2014?
With the rise of new and less centralized models and strategies for diplomacy, there is a need to build strong relationships with decentralized communities and individuals, harness the power of new media, and keep pace in a rapidly changing world.
To advance our priorities in Israel, the Middle East, and around the world, we must build strong relationships with the rising centers of influence. Our generation can leverage our values, expertise, and networks to navigate this new, uncharted diplomatic terrain.
The Summit is a rare opportunity to connect with other young and energetic leaders, share best practices, and benefit from AJC resources and expertise to gain world-class training in leadership. We offer hands-on sessions devoted to practical skills such as fundraising, diplomatic training, social media workshops, program design, and other skills that will position ACCESS leaders for maximum impact and enable participants to put into action ideas from other Summit sessions.
Here are some of the issues you can expect to discuss at the ACCESS Summit:
