4th Annual Harry Kay Leadership Summit

Embracing Productive Disruption: Using this Moment to Strengthen Our Community and Future

May 12, 2021 // 12 noon // Free and open to all

Across our society and economy, every industry has faced major disruption and innovation from companies like Wikipedia, Uber, and Netflix.

But how do we productively disrupt ourselves in order to continue to innovate, remain relevant, and engage our evolving communities in the coming years?

How can lay leaders, professionals, and community members help build a culture of creative and responsive design to make our organizations resilient and successful in our changing community?

Drawing on lessons from business, innovation theory, the COVID 19 Pandemic, and the results of the Twin Cities Jewish Community Population Study, we’ll explore how to embrace this moment of productive disruption to strengthen our community and better our future.

This interactive session will inspire you to envision and embrace new practices as we establish a post-pandemic “new normal.”  Walk away with applicable lessons to bring back to your life and the organizations you’re involved with.
