Shari interviews Karyn Grossman Gershon, CEO at Project Kesher. Project Kesher was founded to support a growing network of Jewish women leaders in Belarus, Georgia, Russia, Moldova, and Ukraine to empower and engage women and support the return of Jewish life to the post-Soviet states. Shari and Karyn discuss how Karyn made the decision to leave law, Project Kesher’s mission, and their work helping women and girls in Ukraine during the war. Karyn also shares traits that make a good not-for-profit CEO, lessons from her divorce, and lessons that her children have taught her and more.
Karyn Grossman Gershon is the CEO of Project Kesher in the US and architect of the Project Kesher’s international network of Jewish leaders. Since 1994, she has organized Jewish leadership training for over 6,000 women in Ukraine, Russia, Belarus, and Israel. Project Kesher’s programs build intergenerational Jewish life, advance gender equality, and promote public health and wellness. PK-trained leaders are at the forefront of the struggle to improve the rights, status, and quality of life for women and girls. Since Russia’s escalation of the war in Ukraine in February 2022, Project Kesher has redirected its leadership to responding to the humanitarian needs of the Jewish community, women and girls in Ukraine.
