Monday 18 September 2017
As KeshetUK’s first full time employee, Dalia will take on the Board of Trustees’ executive functions as well as supporting both our director of programmes, Neil Levitan and volunteer coordinator, Emma Grant, to deliver sustainable growth for our education, training and advocacy projects.
Dalia is an experienced trainer, facilitator and programme manager. Previously having worked for Local Government in areas ranging from child poverty policy to IT programme management, she has simultaneously been volunteering with KeshetUK since 2012, primarily developing the Education piece.
In a joint statement the Trustees said, “KeshetUK is delighted that Dalia will lead KeshetUK as our first executive director from 13 November 2017. She has been a key development and delivery partner across several of our workstreams and understands the complex nature LGBT+ inclusion work for different stakeholders across the Jewish community. We know she will bring lots of energy and hit the ground running at a time where demand for our services has far outweighed supply.”
Dalia added, “I am excited to build on the momentum that KeshetUK has created over the last 6 years. Placing us at the forefront when communities, organisations and individuals are working to make their worlds more inclusive and supporting KeshetUK's vision that no Jewish person has to choose between their faith and LGBT+ identity.”
