IMPACT: POLITICAL

Paving the way for women to take leadership roles in the security sector.

How are you impacting your community?

Over the past decade, I have dedicated my career to social entrepreneurship, technological innovation, and strategic communication. I am the Global Manager of the iCoach Program at Hewlett Packard Enterprise. Previously, I served as the Head of Communications and Business Development Intelligence at Wikistrat. My expertise in innovation dates back to my role as Director of Content and Programs for PresenTense, where I helped run five social and technological accelerators around the world.

I completed a BA in Communications and am currently pursuing a Master’s degree in Security and Military Strategy at Tel Aviv University. My thesis examines the stability of national borders. I am a graduate of the Mahindra UWC of India and an active member of the Israeli UWC National Committee. My concerns about global social cohesion and economic development led me to co-found House of Genius Israel and the Women’s Parliament at the American Jewish Committee. My GATHER project aims to shed a light on women in conflict regions who serve in leading security roles in their countries. These roles, historically occupied by men, are critical to conflict management and resolution.
