Join us for an evening with Mariam Kabaha, Esq., Israel’s National Equal Employment Opportunities Commissioner and highest-ranking Arab woman public servant. Under her leadership, the EEOC has increased its activities in promoting diversity employment as well as protecting equal opportunity across Israeli society. Her discussion will focus on the status of diversity hiring and employment opportunity in Israel and how EEOC efforts complement growing government priorities to increase representation of Arab citizens, haredim, and other minorities in the labor force.  She is currently the highest‐ranking Arab woman in Israel’s civil service.
