SRE Network Unveils New Strategic Plan

November 26th, 2023

Over the last five years, SRE Network has worked toward creating safer, more respectful, and equitable Jewish workplaces and communal spaces. SRE Network pursues this vision through network building, resource sharing, and community investments. Following nearly a year of listening, learning, reflecting, and dreaming together, SRE Network recently shared its 2024-2026 strategic plan.

With SRE’s powerful support, we’ve been able to amplify our voice, and we’ve been able to engage our partners with the very difficult but needed work of accountability and repair, finding a path forward. – SRE Member



The plan captures the goals below that SRE Network knows are needed to successfully sustain this budding ecosystem of positive workplace and communal culture change over the next three years:

  1. Support network growth, accountability, and impact through three engagement pathways (members, affiliates, and partners) and new membership benefits.
  2. Embed safety, respect, and equity values and the SRE Standards across its sector by highlighting and expanding learning, resources, and strategic guidance across safety, respect, and equity.
  3. Expand its collective impact by awarding $3 million to affiliates and members over the course of the next three years.
  4. Drive greater awareness of safety, respect, and equity issues, and SRE Network’s work and services by investing in communications and thought leadership.
  5. Ensure sustained growth and impact by building SRE’s organizational capacity.

SRE Network believes that these efforts can have larger, positive ripple effects across the Jewish community that build on current successes. Already, since its launch in 2018, the organization has grown to include more than 170 Jewish organizations and has seeded more than $5.5 million in grants to support organizations’ efforts toward change. Its annual report of nearly all member organizations tracks progress they make toward building safer, more respectful, and equitable workplaces and communal spaces. Throughout the year, SRE Network’s events, programs, and resources help organizations improve and deepen efforts to that end.

[The most valuable part of being a SRE member is] is having someone and someplace to turn to when we have an incident, and knowing we are not alone going through this work, as well as the materials and tools to utilize to increase the safety, respect, and equity at our organization. – SRE Member
