Judaism, #metoo and Ethical Leadership

How Jewish ideas can inform the current discourse on power, privilege, and sexual assault.

The #metoo movement has increased awareness of the sexual violence and discrimination faced by women in the workplace and beyond. This reality demands new ways of acting and thinking. Shalom Hartman Institute of North America is committed to exploring what role Jewish tradition can play in this process.

Scholars on the Created Equal Research Team have been investigating questions of gender equity and ethical leadership for the past three years. In this #metoo moment, we believe that the ways in which Jewish tradition intersects with gender, power, and violence, is an essential question for our community.

Judaism, #metoo and Ethical Leadership: Perspectives from the Created Equal Project explores how Jewish ideas can inform the current discourse on power, privilege and sexual assault and generates new insights and deep conversation.

Each video is followed by links to sources and a short guide for educators to prepare for leading discussions around the material.
