Women in Israel’s High Tech Sector

March 19 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


The Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) of the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia, in partnership with the Philadelphia-Israel Chamber of Commerce, will host Ifat Baron, Founder and CEO of Itworks, a high-tech recruitment and placement organization that also promotes employment diversity in the industry, and Sireen Nijeem, an Arab engineer and a graduate of ItWorks, who was the first woman computer-science engineer from her community and is almost always the first Arab employee in every company where she works. Together, they will share insights into the private sector and national efforts to integrate Israel’s Arab citizens into its most renowned industry, on the one hand, and the personal journey of an Arab citizen—a woman especially—who broke barriers, broke into this world and is now a role model for others.
