Leadership in Action
Global Diplomacy: ACCESS NY’s Diplomatic Dinner Club builds long-term relationships with diplomats in the New York area and provides opportunities to advocate on key AJC issues. By engaging with younger consuls, ACCESS NY leaders gain global perspectives on important international issues and discuss and delve into critical Jewish concerns, such as Israel and antisemitism. Diplomatic Dinner Club programs are open to AJC ACCESS donors at the Marshall Society level.
Inter-Community Understanding: ACCESS NY’s alliances build relationships with young professional leaders from diverse religious, ethnic, and racial backgrounds. Through active outreach efforts and collaborative programming with our Latino, Muslim, African American, and Asian American partners, young Jewish professionals explore issues of mutual importance. And by educating other communities about the Jewish community and advocating together on behalf of mutual interests and values, ACCESS NY advances cross-cultural understanding and promotes strong, mutually-beneficial ties.
