Join San Francisco's largest interactive networking forum for Jewish graduate students, young executives, and industry leaders.

JELCON: The Jewish Executive Leadership Conference, sponsored by The Redstone Family, is San Francisco’s largest interactive networking forum bringing high-level Jewish executives together with Jewish MBA and law students, young professionals, and entrepreneurs. Join hundreds of graduate students as they gather to hear experienced executives, who are also community leaders, impact upon them their career successes and the importance of young community leadership.

Our inaugural San Francisco JELCON event will be held on January 26, 2020 at the Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco.

JELCON features A-list keynote speakers and approximately 50 executive panelists representing leaders in the finance, legal services, entertainment, startup, technology, and real estate industries, plus an exclusive networking cocktail hour showcasing premier Jewish nonprofits.
