Israel Distinguished Speaker Series: Equality in the Workplace | Dec.17

Dec 17, 2019 7:30pm - 9:00pm


Mariam Kabaha, Israel’s Commissioner for National Equal Employment Opportunities (EEOC) is the highest-ranking Arab woman public servant. Under her leadership, the EEOC has in­creased its activities in promoting diversity in employment as well as protecting equal opportunity across Israeli society.

What is the status of diversity hiring and employment opportunity in Israel? How do EEOC efforts complement the government’s efforts to increase representation of Arab citizens, haredim, and other minorities in the labor force? How has Commissioner Ka­baha’s life journey prepared her for this role, and what is her vision for the Israeli labor market of the future?

Join us at Congregation Beth El of Montgomery County for a presentation and discussion, with a dessert reception to follow. Sponsored by Beth El’s Am Yisrael Chai Committee and the Greater Washington Forum on Israeli Arab Issues.
