· Tikkun Central



Join the Temple Israel community as we hear from Colette Phillips, author of The Includers: the Seven Traits of Culturally Savvy, Anti-Racist Leaders. This conversation will broach the intersections between antisemitism and antiracism work as we consider our role as a multi-racial Jewish community in a world rocked by the events of October 7 and all that has followed. A Black Jewish woman who has been involved with DEI work for 30 years, Colette A.M. Phillips will inspire and challenge our community to lead as strong advocates for belonging, diversity, equity, and inclusion for all.

Colette A.M. Phillips is president and CEO of Colette Phillips Communications, Inc., and founder and president of the GK Fund and the multicultural professional and business networking organization Get Konnected! For 30 years, Colette has been a powerful voice and effective agent of change in one of America’s oldest cities. An immigrant Black woman from the Caribbean island of Antigua described by Boston Magazine as "Boston’s great connector" and cited by The Boston Globe for "changing the conversation about diversity in Boston," she was the subject of a Harvard Business School case study for creating a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion ecosystem. Colette has brought her passion, power, and wisdom to publications and C-suites around the globe. She has spent a lifetime making workplaces more inclusive, opening them to new markets, talent, and possibilities.
