The Value of Inclusivity

The Value of Inclusivity

Driving Israeli Innovation Through Our Concerted Action

“Diversity fosters innovation and creativity through a greater variety of problem-solving approaches, perspectives, and ideas.”
Diversity Matters, McKinsey & Company 2015

Our world is made up of people of different backgrounds, cultures, religions, genders, sexual orientations, abilities, and ideas.And now, we’re looking to bring diversity to Israel’s venture capital and hi-tech space. When such unique perspectives are combined, our community becomes richer, and our leaders, players, and the products we create become more fitting for the world we serve.

For Israel to continue to serve as an international model for innovation, it is essential that the members of the Israeli tech industry reflect the diverse world in which we live.

As we increase the diversity within our community, our companies – and society as a whole – will reach greater heights of success.

Imagine an Israeli industry that employs the most of its human capital, inviting the potential of everyone in our society. Where companies are founded by Arab and Jewish entrepreneurs together, women take the lead in start up management, and recruitment teams make active efforts to diversify their companies.
