Beth Katz is the founder and executive director of Project Interfaith in Omaha, Nebraska. Beth got bitten by the interfaith bug in college, co-founding a student interfaith group and developing a passion for a world where people of all faiths, beliefs, and cultures are valued and included. After receiving graduate degrees in public policy and social work, she came back home to Omaha to start Project Interfaith. Along with the Project’s many programs, Beth is a frequent guest speaker, at home and abroad, including the 2009 Parliament of the World’s Religions in Melbourne. Her monthly column, “The Accidental Theist,” is published on the blog Omaha.net. She teaches international conflict resolution and religious diversity courses at the University of Nebraska and is on the board of the Center for Catholic Thought at Creighton University.
