We are a Jewish network of over 160 organizations across North America rooted in our shared commitment to safety, respect, and equity for all. We inspire meaningful change in workplaces and communal spaces by bringing people together to address gender-based harassment, discrimination, and inequity. Our work is focused on building community, research & learning, and strategic community investments, using an intersectional lens of gender justice. Launched in March 2018, SRE Network currently operates as a fiscally sponsored project of New Venture Fund. SRE is led by its inaugural executive director and five staff members who are based throughout the United States, as well as additional topic-area advisors and consultants. Our eight-person Advisory Board is composed of communal leaders, and our work is supported by over a dozen Jewish philanthropists and foundations.
SRE Network is a network, convener, thought leader, and grantmaker. SRE Network is known for its Standards for Creating Safe, Respectful, and Equitable Jewish Workplaces and Communal Spaces. Network members agree to implement these standards over time. Our annual convening engages over 200 professionals, volunteers, and funders of Jewish organizations across North America in two days of learning, with additional programming offered throughout the year. SRE Network serves as a multiplier through our community investments portfolio, which encompasses both grantmaking and investments in gender equity work and fostering safe, respectful, and equitable Jewish workplaces and communal spaces at large, awarding over $1M in new grants per year. To date, SRE Network has awarded over $3.75M in grants to dozens of initiatives and organizations. In December 2022, we launched our first-ever strategic planning process which will conclude in May 2023 and provide a roadmap for our work for the next 3-5 years of growth.
