steal this

Do you have a big idea or innovation that you want to share with your colleagues across the United States and Canada? Tell us about it here and you might be selected to share it on the Steal This* Stage during JPRO19 in Detroit.

Steal This will highlight some of the biggest ideas and boldest work coming from Jewish institutions and communities across North America. Each presenter will have up to 5 minutes to present their "big idea." At the conclusion of the conference, all JPRO19 attendees will get access to the ideas so they can be “stolen” and implemented within their organizations or community.
