The Innovation and Collaboration Awards are a way that the Center for Jewish Leadership at Spertus Institute recognizes Jewish communal professionals.
With the goal of fostering a community of practice among area organizations and professionals, the awards are given for projects with innovative concepts that reach across institutions to serve the greater Chicago Jewish community.
Awards are given in two tracks, one specifically for Spertus Institute Alumni and the other open to anyone.
Submissions are due by March 20, 2017.
Awards will be presented to a representative of each selected institution at the annual Jewish Community Networking Night, when information about the projects will be shared with the community. Awardees will receive commendation and financial support for their projects.
