In honor of International Women’s Day, we are pleased to bring together three of our Israeli grantee partners for an online, roundtable discussion about their advocacy efforts. Learn how they are working within the legal and governmental systems to create real change on a policy level. Additionally, we are thrilled to welcome Anat Sultan-Dadon, Consul General of Israel to the Southeastern United States, as the moderator of our panel. She will also share her experience as a foreign diplomat during a global pandemic. (Did you know she hasn’t been back to Israel in over a year?!)
Consul General Sultan-Dadon joined the Israeli diplomatic corps in 2004. She has extensive experience working for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and has held various posts and positions in Israel and abroad. She has held positions at the Israeli embassies in Cameroon, Germany, the Netherlands and most recently in Canberra, Australia. In the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Jerusalem she has held positions in the Euroasia Division and the Asia-Pacific Division. Consul General Sultan-Dadon has a bachelor’s degree in psychology and education from The Hebrew University in Jerusalem as well as a masters in criminology from the same institution.
The conversation will include representatives from:
Center for Women’s Justice – Defends women’s rights to equality, dignity, and justice whenever they are compromised in the name of religion.
Mavoi Satum – Works to spearhead long-term, transformational community impact by increasing the presence of women at all levels of the rabbinical court system to bring about equality and a supportive setting for Jewish women denied a divorce.
Women’s Spirit – Enables women survivors of violence to overcome professional and occupational barriers, establish economic independence, and regain control of their lives while working to change fundamental Israeli policies and laws that undermine, destabilize, and weaken all women but especially victims of violence.
Pull up a seat at our virtual table and join us to hear more about these important programs and how they are empowering women in Israel and paving the way for a more equitable future.+ More... - Less...
