Next-Gen Ovation Leadership Program is for young professionals  


To help prepare young professionals for community leadership and high-level stewardship of non-profit institutions, Ovation Communities has partnered with Fuel Milwaukee to create the Next-Gen Ovation Leadership Program.  

By partnering with Fuel Milwaukee, Ovation Communities, through the Jewish Home and Care Center Foundation, has prepared a sevensession leadership program that equips young professionals with the tools they need to begin serving on organizational boards and committees, while taking an active role to better their community, according to a news release. The Fuel Milwaukee organization is a “talent network” for young professionals.  

“With a focus on diversity and multiple faiths, we want to help train the next generation of people who are going to serve Ovation Communities,” said Tanya Mazor-Posner, Jewish Home and Care Center Foundation vice president of development. “Because we are a Jewish organization, some of the sessions of this program will focus on leadership within a Jewish perspective.   

“At the completion of the seven sessions, our goal is to have these young professionals either serve on one of our three boards or one of our high-level committees.”  

Over the course of seven weeks, Milwaukee’s young professionals will participate in virtual seminars that will cover topics that include financial and fiscal oversight, leadership, strategic planning and thinking, diversity, ageism, and Judaism and Ovation history.
