A group of up to 30 women from Israel, Bahrain, Morocco and the UAE are set to come together in January to participate in an Israeli programme helping them break through the glass ceiling and take up managerial roles in tech.

The three-month program is led by FemForward, a Jerusalem-based nonprofit organisation founded in 2020, and aims to support women in junior tech positions with the tools and network to advance their career to senior levels.

The programme is organised in collaboration with the UAE-Israel Business Council, hwile the US embassy in Israel is responsible for funding.

We have funding to run this program with women from Abraham Accords countries for two years and plan to have four cohorts,

FemForward founder and CEO Rachel Wagner Rosenzweig told The Times of Israel.

FemForward was launched in 2020 to address what is often referred to as the “broken rung” trend — the lack of advancement of women in tech from entry-level to managerial positions.
