In this highly-interactive workshop led by an expert facilitator from The OpEd Project, we will explore how credibility works and how to establish it; how to present ideas quickly and powerfully under pressure; when and why people change their minds; the difference between being “right” and being effective; and strategies for greater impact, including how to preach beyond the choir, and the power in seeing your ideas as part of a bigger picture. Participants will complete the training with an outline of an op-ed in hand, and access to OpEd Project journalist mentors for individual follow up.

Jewish LearningWorks invites women in Jewish communal leadership (lay leaders and professionals) to participate with the Voices for Good Fellows for this important training that will prepare you to:

  • Understand your leadership potential
  • Recognize your own expertise
  • See yourself as an expert
  • Establish credibility
  • Make a persuasive case for your ideas

At the conclusion of this 8-hour training participants will be eligible for one month of mentorship from The OpEd Project journalist mentors. If used within one month, you will receive two more months of mentorship from editors/journalists. Writers are matched with mentors based on topic area; you may submit as many op eds as you want during this time.
