American Jewish University (AJU) will host Kfir Gavrieli as part of its B’Yachad Together online series on August 10, 2020 in a webinar titled: “Doing Business for Good.” We live at a time of great excitement – and great skepticism – about the role that business can play in addressing society’s most pressing challenges.

In conversation with AJU Dean of the Graduate School of Nonprofit Management, David Groshoff, two leading next generation entrepreneurs – Kfir Gavrieli of Tieks and Joe Sanberg of Aspiration.com – will share insights on how they’ve successfully pioneered new models for socially conscious capitalism.

Through digital programming, B’Yachad Together seeks to advance ideas, dialogue and debate relevant to the struggles posed by the coronavirus.

Kfir Gavrieli is the CEO and co-founder of Tieks, a world-leading women’s fashion brand known for its Italian leather, split-sole flat shoes. As an entrepreneur and philanthropist, Gavrieli is a leader in PPE response efforts, donating over 1,000,000 masks to frontline healthcare workers through his Operation #SewTogether campaign.
