The Anti-Defamation League Women’s Initiative unites diverse women professionals in ADL’s efforts to promote respect and challenge bigotry through dialogue and awareness.

Founded in 2013, the Women’s Initiative sponsors several events annually featuring distinguished and engaging speakers on a topic related to ADL’s mission “to stop the defamation of the Jewish people and secure justice and for treatment for all.”  2020 events include:  a private performance of The Green Book at the Ensemble Theatre, the National Refugee Shabbat, International Women’s Day Summit, and more.

Each program will highlight a special aspect of ADL’s work to challenge hate and bigotry and promote respect and provide ways to support ADL’s work financially.
