Tsofen’s Board of Directors is half Jewish and half Arab. Its members include professionals with backgrounds in hi-tech, academia, and business. The Board gathers quarterly and maintains regular involvement in Tsofen’s activities, mainly in connecting us with hi-tech companies.
“Tsofen offers a model for a shared society in Israel. We believe that through the integration of Arab academics in the hi-tech industry and the introduction of hi-tech into the Arab cities, a huge contribution will be made not only to the Arab society’s economy but to the entire Israeli economy. Through the many tracks offered by the organization, such as practical training, mentoring, placements, encouraging entrepreneurship and more, young Arabs who previously perceived the hi-tech industry as a closed door, are starting to realize that the dream of working in hi-tech is feasible. We congratulate the hi-tech companies that have already brought about change and the governmental bodies that are working on this matter.
Together, we can accelerate the revolution we started about a decade ago and lead the hi-tech industry in Israel forward.”
