Over 7000 women responded to a survey about career advancement in Jewish communal service that was distributed by the World Council after its last Quadrennial, in which limited attention was given to this issue. The respondents, a well-read, well-educated group that is dedicated to Jewish communal service as a career, ranked the creation of mentoring opportunities and workshops to guide women's career advancement as the highest priorities for the World Council's agenda. Indeed, since the last Quadrennial, the World Council has increased the number of female board members, assigned increased visibility to career advancement on the Executive Committee's agenda, and made a commitment to addressing women's issues in depth at the upcoming Quadrennial.
