Nurturing: June 12--JQ International Q is the premiere LGBTQ+ Jewish organization in Los Angeles. JQ celebrates the lives of LGBTQ+ Jews and their allies by transforming Jewish communities and ensuring inclusion through community building, educational programs, and support and wellness services, promoting the healthy integration of LGBTQ+ and Jewish identities. JQ envisions a world where all LGBTQ+ Jews feel a strong sense of self, pride, and community – a place where LGBTQ+ Jews and their allies are supported by communities that embrace their needs and celebrate their unique gifts. Our work is focused in three primary categories: community building, educational programs, and support services, creating a joyful and healthy future for individuals to connect through transformative and engaging programs, learn together to become inclusive and embracing allies, and thrive from seeking life-saving emotional and spiritual support.
Intended to be experienced as teams, we are hoping the LAB Sessions will offer our partner organizations insight into themes and tools for each of our institutions and program to share, build, and grow. Much like our past engagement summits, each of the LAB Sessions will feature an outstanding professional from around the Jewish field. All participants will have to opportunity to learn as groups of 2-5 from sponsoring organization and will have time to work within the session as their team and with the wider group. Ten sessions will be offered, each team does not need to be the same for each session. Example: a topic may pertain to a membership committee but not to a finance committee, then those committee members should participate. The only exception being the preference to ensure there is one consistent staffer or layperson who attends all 10 sessions to ensure consistency across the course. All sessions will be 7-9 pm on Zoom. Cost is $180 to the sponsoring partner organization regardless of number of sessions attended or people from each org participating.
