Sheva Tauby, shlucha and director of iVolunteer in New York, spoke at Stern College Tuesday along with a distinguished panel of presenters about Jewish women and entrepreneurship.
“Women of Vision” is a program implemented in Stern College for girls to learn from successful Jewish women and their entrepreneurial paths.
The other speakers/presenters were Bracha Rutner, a yoetzet halacha, Dr. Nicole B. Schreiber-Agus, a genetic counselor and professor of genetics, and Michelle Greenberg-Kobrin, the dean of Columbia Law School.
Tauby spoke about her founding the iVolunteer organization, a visitation program that sends volunteers to the homes of Holocaust survivors, and her position in the nonprofit world which includes iVolunteer NY, iVolunteer FL (ivolunteerFL) and iVolunteer Toronto ivolunteertoronto). She spoke as a role model – a committed Jewish woman who is successful in her field.
The purpose was to share her personal and professional experience that would be helpful to students who are beginning their own educational and professional journeys.
Following the presentation there was a question and answer period. It created a lively discussion and was a true success.
