Ruderman Inclusion Summit

The Ruderman Inclusion Summit brings together over 1,000 people from a variety of sectors including: tech, policy, human services, fashion, education, social justice, business, housing, advocacy and more to network and share best practices. Our goal is to inspire, motivate, and arm attendees with the know how to keep up the work of advancing full inclusion of people with disabilities in every aspect of life. These two days will be packed with over 15 panels and plenaries!

People with disabilities are the world’s largest minority, representing 20% of the global population. The principal of inclusion—ensuring that people with disabilities have equal access to opportunities, resources, and services—is fundamentally aligned with Limmud’s values. Moreover, developing strong and sustainable communities is only truly possible if all members are fully included. Jay and Shira Ruderman, through their family foundation, have put the issue of inclusion on the map in the Jewish community and beyond.

The biennial Ruderman Inclusion Summit http://inclusion2017.org/ is the most significant national event promoting the status of people with disabilities. The Summit will bring together over 500 community stakeholders to foster strategic advocacy and awareness, peer to peer learning, best practice, networking and more. The Summit will feature internationally recognized leaders in the field, speaking and engaging with attendees on the critical issues of education, housing, employment, community and religious life.

The Ruderman Foundation is guided by Jewish values and all provided meals will be kosher.

Sunday, November 19, 2017 – Monday, November 20, 2017 10:00 AM – 8:00 PM Eastern Time Conference will take place over 2 days.
