Emma Goldman as a symbol
Our organization was named for Emma Goldman, an outspoken tireless leader and advocate for women's rights. Emma Goldman was an accomplished leader even though she lived during a time when women had very few rights. Participants in the Emma Fellowship are Jewish women who care about advancing the careers of women and increasing the visibility and credibility of Jewish women leaders.
Curriculum for Emma Fellowship and Emma Institutes
The curriculum and program model for the Emma Fellowship and our Emma Institute training was developed by Leah Weiner as part of her doctoral studies in Organizational Leadership at Pepperdine University's Graduate School of Education and Psychology.
The Emma Fellowship collaborates with the Jewish Women's Conference an annual event in Los Angeles organized by the National Council for Jewish Women/LA that brings together hundreds of Jewish women to discuss important issues including women in leadership, reproductive rights and social justice.
