Through the Glass Leadership Institute, ADL empowers its next generation of leaders.  This nationally recognized leadership program provides the region’s top young professionals with the tools to fight hatred and bigotry in their own communities by providing unique opportunities to explore ADL’s global mission from an insider’s perspective.  Glass Leadership Institute participants engage in a year of dynamic, interactive sessions, exposing them to the important work of the ADL and the full range of issues on ADL’s agenda including, but not limited to: civil rights advocacy, combating domestic terrorism, international initiatives, Israel advocacy, anti-bias education and training, and community and interfaith outreach.  Participants also have the opportunity to socialize with peers, network with ADL’s senior leadership and attend the Shana Amy Glass National Leadership Conference in Washington, DC.


“Not only did I get to learn more about this immensely important civil rights organization, I met some of the most thoughtful and passionate young professionals in my city. Participating in GLI also really opened my eyes to the amount of work that still needs to be done to combat hate; but left me feeling hopeful knowing so many talented, committed people at ADL have made this their life’s work.”
