The Task Force, Greater Washington Forum on Israeli Arab Issues, and the Washington DC JCC hosted a special event with Dr. Asmaa Ganayem on Education in Shared Society: How Israel’s Women Are Working for a More Inclusive Tomorrow.
The challenge of strengthening shared society in Israel has been a growing focus among civil society organizations and the government of Israel. Jewish and Arab women have taken the lead in creating innovative models to educate future generations for a more inclusive, equal and cohesive society.
In this talk and Q&A, Dr. Aasma Ganayem, Co-Founder & Co-Director of TEC Center at the Mofet Institute in Israel, offered perspective on education for shared society in Israel and what drives the commitment of those who work for it. Why do these leading women look to education as a powerful vehicle for change? What are the models and insights that their grassroots work has to offer Israeli society at large?
Dr. Ganayem is an expert, lecturer and trainer in technology integration in education and multiculturalism. She is the founder for educational programs for closing the digital gaps within Palestinian-Israeli society and between Israel’s Arab and Jewish communities.
