About the company
Forum Dvorah was initially established in 2009 with the support of the Institute for Inclusive Security, in order to promote the inclusion of women in national security decision-making processes and in peacemaking negotiations and inspired by UNSCR 1325, which stresses the importance of equal participation and involvement of women in all efforts for the maintenance and promotion of peace and security. We are a non-partisan, non-profit NGO with an active network of professional women in an array of fields relating to Israel’s national security and foreign policy. Our participants come from a variety of opinions on the political spectrum and from various backgrounds. Our 600+ network includes women who are leading figures in Israel, including many women who “broke the glass ceiling” in their field, as well as the next generation of leadership among younger women in these fields. Our vision is the equal representation of women in key decision-making positions in the fields of national security and foreign policy; within the Israeli security and policy-making establishment. We work with allies and fellow stakeholders in the Knesset, the Cabinet, Government agencies, the foreign diplomatic community and other civil-society organizations in Israel and around the world.
