On the 11th February 2021, the Commonwealth Jewish Council launched a network of exceptional women, to connect and support female leadership across Commonwealth Jewish communities.
As new members of the Commonwealth family, we feel there is an opportunity to focus specifically on the existence of women of the faith communities and their contributions to civil society.
We recognise that Jewish women from across the Commonwealth possess a range of skills, experience and willingness to contribute. When united, potentially with women from other faith groups too, we can work together as a force for good to raise the profile of Commonwealth women and work towards enhancing gender equality as part of the sustainable development goals.
With this in mind, we have created a Commonwealth Jewish Women’s Network. This will offer opportunities for Jewish women from Commonwealth communities to connect with one another and raise awareness of issues relevant to numerous other women of the Commonwealth.
