Sindyanna of Galilee, a Fair Trade association, together with the Workers Advice Center (WAC-MAAN), the Bread and Roses art exhibit and the Italian NGO Cospe, invite you to a discussion on integrating Arab women into Israel’s labor market. The evening is organized in the framework of the Project Fair Trade, Fair Peace, funded by the European Union.
The employment of Arab women has become a recognized desideratum of late, but the topic is more honored in speech than in practice. On the side of practice, however, WAC-MAAN and Sindyanna have for several years conducted an art exhibit and sale, called “Bread and Roses,” which is dedicated to the struggle for equality on the part of Arab women, and in particular to WAC’s project for placing women in agriculture.
The panel participants:
Panel One: Nitsa Kasir is from the research department of the Bank of Israel and has co-edited the bank’s report on the employment of Arabs in Israel; Ziyad Abou Habla, CPA, Economist, School of Public Policy Tel Aviv University, CEO of the Economic Council For Arab Sector Development; Tamar Zandberg is a member of the Knesset from Meretz; Tali Heruti-Sover is a senior editor of The Marker; Hanan Manadre runs the Sindyanna Visitor Center in Kefar Manda; Michal Schwartz coordinates WAC’s women’s project.
