Join us at PeaceCon 2020!

Join Tanenbaum CEO, Mark Fowler, alongside Jean-Marie Navetta of PFLAG, and Ambassador Bonnie Jenkins of WCAPS as they explore Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the Peacebuilding workplace!

Tune in on Monday, Dec. 7 at 12:30 PM EST for this collaboration between two of Tanenbaum’s Programs, Conflict Resolution & Peacebuilding and Workplace by registering for PeaceCon here.

PeaceCon 2020 will be the most global, virtual peacebuilding event of the year and will feature diverse voices from around the world.

Workshop – Building an Inclusive Peace: In the Field and in the Office

We’ve seen many companies answer the call for change. We’ve seen many U.S.-based nonprofits pledge to “do better” as organizations who work in non-U.S. contexts. As some of the U.S. wakes up to decades of systemic oppression, this session will help U.S.-based non-profits use intersectional approaches to honoring all identities. Rev. Mark Fowler of Tanenbaum, Amb. Bonnie Jenkins of WCAPS, and Jean-Marie Navetta of PFLAG will share practical frameworks for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) conversations and actions in your workplace. This workshop will equip attendees with practical and applicable Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) knowledge.

TANENBAUM SimClinic:
Medical Education through Simulation
Live Webinar: http://tinyurl.com/y9o2zxxb 
Tuesday, July 7th  12:00 – 1:00 pm ET

Maria McQuade, Health Care Senior Associate
Ira Bedzow, Bioethicist at New York Medical College

Please join Tanenbaum as we launch two new patient modules as a continuation of our SimClinic series. Bring your curriculum into the 21st century, with our newest online learning modules. These modules explore doctor-patient relationships and approaches when a patient’s religion or culture is impacting their decision-making. These modules are created to help medical students gain the necessary tools for navigating difficult conversations around religion and culture. In this session, we will be discussing simulation as a learning tool for students, particularly in this current environment, and would love your feedback on our newest patient scenarios.

All those who attend and complete the modules and user survey will be eligible to win one of ten $10 Amazon gift cards.

 


 

Thank you for celebrating with us!

A few highlights from Tanenbaum’s 2020 Gala!

“We have 43,000 students that have been educated and exposed to this program and over 600 faculty members in public schools. I’d love that to be every faculty member in every school, public or private.”
Philanthropic Bridge Builder Award, Marcy Syms, President and Founding Trustee, Sy Syms Foundation, on her support of Tanenbaum’s curricula, Religions In My Neighborhood.

“The work you are doing…is amazing because I really do feel it reflects America’s true values. America is a secular country that should fight for inclusion, irrespective of race, color, creed, class, or religion.”
Media Bridge Builder Award, Hasan Minhaj, Host of Netflix’s Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj

“Religion is a core identity and over 80% of the world identifies as religious. Tanenbaum is important because we understand this and we address it. My hope is that it will go from strength to strength, that it will further its global impact and more people will be treated equitably, with dignity and with respect.”
Visionary Award, Joyce S. Dubensky, CEO, Tanenbaum


Dear Tanenbaum Community,

Words cannot describe how grateful we are to have shared an amazing night with you all. Our first live Virtual Gala was an exciting, new and fun way to keep our annual tradition, and we could not have done it without all of you! And thank you all for your patience with some of our tech glitches.

Many people tuned into our livestream last night as we honored Marcy Syms, Hasan Minhaj, and our very own Joyce Dubensky. While we are physically distanced, socially we came together, from across the globe, united in our belief that a world that respects religious differences is so very much needed now.

Thank you for your donations last night to the Visionary Fund in honor of Joyce Dubensky! It’s not too late to help fortify Tanenbaum’s innovative programs and projects with a gift. Text to pledge is available at (347) 970-2803.

I hope that you all enjoyed the show and had a good chuckle or two, and we thank you for continuing to stand with us as we forge ahead in our mission and work to promote justice and build respect for religious differences.

Until next time, 

Mark Fowler
Deputy CEO, Tanenbaum
