The Jewish Professional Women’s Network (JPWN) recently elected its new leadership for 2023, with Lee-at Jacobson succeeding founding member, Amie Rochman, as president.
Rochman said in her closing address to the board in reflection of her tenure, “It has been an overwhelming privilege to have been the president of JPWN during this financial year, and for the last three years. I am so proud of the board as it stands today, and all that we have continued to achieve and offer to our community, as we have developed and grown as a board. I am delighted to hand over to the new board for the 2023 year and look forward to continuing to support all that you do.”
Jacobson will succeed Rochman from her role as secretary to president, with Ariella Birnbaum continuing in the role as vice-president, Kylie Zamel-Gjubini continuing as treasurer and Amanda Fajerman stepping in as secretary. Other ongoing board members include Emily Golshtein, Naomi Farberman and newly elected member, Lorena Goldring.
Jacobson said she is both “humbled and privileged” to take on the role of president.
“I know we will continue to grow the JPWN’s presence and mission in this community,” she said.
Jacobson added, “From the early days of attending events, I have been, and continue to be, inspired and enriched by the incredible women in our community who have such diverse and fascinating careers.”
“We have emerged from Covid stronger than ever with a clear vision and purpose, and I can’t wait to see what 2023 brings.”
