David Bernstein’s fantastic article tells of the difference between the “old professional” and the “new professional” in today’s business world. The “new professional” is open about his or her mistakes and hobbies opposed to the “old professional” who was more closed off and impersonal. In today’s world, CEOs are quirky and not conservative. He writes that, “if the Jewish community is going to attract top talent for the future, we must provide the type of authentic wok environments and organizational cultures that appeal to a younger generation of professionals, organizations led by out-of-the-closet, authentic professional leader they can relate to – the kind they aspire to become when they take the reins.” This article is a reminder that we need to plan for the future and make sure we have our target audience in mind. As an organization that works closely with the younger generation on a daily basis, we at Areyvut are always trying to appeal to the latest generation in genuine and meaningful ways. We look forward to the future of our chesed work with this new generation as they are brimming with creativity and insight.
