Chamberlain, Hrdlicka, White, Williams & Aughtry announces that associate Gregg M. Jacobson has been selected to participate in the Anti-Defamation League’s (ADL) 2017-2018 Glass Leadership Institute (GLI). This competitive year-long program is a nationally recognized leadership development program designed to give a select group of young professionals an up-close and personal view of the programs, policies and expertise of the ADL. The program serves as a comprehensive introduction to ADL and provides a pathway into an impressive network of ADL young professional leaders.
Jacobson is among only 23 participants in Atlanta chosen for the GLI. Participants between the ages of 22 and 40 are selected by the ADL and other community leaders, and come from a diverse professional background, including individuals in law, business, nonprofit and government. Participation includes monthly meetings, engagement in high-level briefings with top government officials and decision-makers, and the opportunity to take part in advocacy on Capitol Hill with elected officials.
The ADL is the nation’s premier civil rights/human relations organization. Rooted in Jewish values, it is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization with supporters and partners throughout the U.S. and around the world. The organization speaks up for those whose voices are not always heard. Its network of more than two dozen regional offices nationwide and an office in Jerusalem are on the ground, organizing and galvanizing grassroots support around the most pressing issues of the day.
