ADL’s Glass Leadership Institute (GLI) is a nationally recognized fellowship program designed to give emerging leaders the opportunity to learn more about ADL’s crucial work. GLI was founded in 1997 to provide the next generation of leaders (in their 20s to early-40s) the opportunity to learn more about ADL’s vital mission – to stop the defamation of the Jewish people and secure justice and fair treatment to all. Since then, the program has engaged thousands of individuals who are knowledgeable about ADL’s work, committed to ensuring the organization’s vitality, and effectively advocating for the mission of ADL. This nine-month (September – June) program is a comprehensive introduction to ADL and serves as a chance to engage with other emerging leaders in the New York/New Jersey Region.

Over the course of the program, fellows gain the skills to combat hate so that there is a new base of community leaders who are committed to the vitality of the organization. Each month fellows will gather for interactive sessions with ADL experts covering the full range of issues on the ADL agenda. The culmination of the GLI program is the annual National Leadership Summit (NLS) in Washington D.C. At this three-day conference, GLI participants from across the country, national and regional ADL leaders, and staff from ADL’s regional offices convene for plenary sessions, breakouts and workshops, and lobbying meetings on Capitol Hill with local legislators to advocate for ADL.
