Prior to closure as a stand-alone organization, Advancing Women Professionals and the Jewish Community celebrated 100+ Jewish nonprofits that qualified for its Better Work, Better Life Campaign, by adopting paid parental leave and/or formal flexible work arrangements. In the summer of 2015, Hillel International adopted a new Family Leave Policy meeting the standards of the BWBL Campaign. Hillel International President and CEO Eric D. Fingerhut made the case for paid leave in “talent-driven organizations” at the BWBL Celebration on October 28, 2015 at the Prince George Ballroom in New York City, highlighting Hillel’s commitment to providing benefits that reflect our values of family and community.
