We are pleased to announce that our Program Director Emma Naliboff Pettit has accepted a position as the Assistant Program Director for the Intergroup Relations Program at the University of California, Los Angeles, in her hometown. She is an integral part of our office and while we are sad she is leaving us, we are excited for her as she embarks on this new journey.
Emma’s contributions to the team include working alongside our founder Hal Saunders, creating key resources on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, developing the Sustained Dialogue retreats program into a national model with cutting-edge curricula, and leading our evaluation efforts. Her accomplishments within the span of five years truly represent at least a decade of work.
We wish her happiness and success in her new position and cannot wait to see what she accomplishes!
