Better Work, Better Life: Practices and Policies in Jewish Organizations

By Shifra Bronznick, Didi Goldenhar, Rachael Ellison

Advancing Women Professionals and the Jewish Community (AWP), Fall 2009

Over the past two decades, the corporate sector has researched and driven change to support work life balance. The nonprofit sector has lagged behind. Advancing Women Professionals and the Jewish Community (“AWP”), an organization focused on career and leadership issues, identified the need for practical information and technical assistance around work-life policy. Accordingly, AWP initiated a national survey in Fall 2008. The resulting report is the first comprehensive analysis of work-life policies in the Jewish community. Survey results indicate some degree of receptivity to improved work-life practices and policies. However, for most of these organizations, formal policies fall short of what good values and good employment practices demand.
