Strengthening The Start-Up Nation Through Diversity and Inclusion


Imagine if Israeli industry could maximize its human capital, benefitting from the potential of everyone in our society, where Arab and Jewish entrepreneurs founded companies together, women took the lead in start-up management, and recruitment teams made active efforts to diversify their companies!
Power in Diversity brings diversity to Israel’s venture capital and hi-tech space, by developing and implementing tools for promoting a variety of opinions, abilities and experience to create new opportunities and horizons for people and startups alike.

DEI Processes


Making Companies Stronger

Combining different cultures and worldviews in a thoughtful manner in the work environment encourages creative thinking. We learned that diversity can foster better development and QA processes and a more agile and flexible leadership. An organization that is better able to adapt and provide solutions in a rapidly changing world – all lead to improving a company’s chance for success.

Making Israel Stronger

Providing opportunities for diverse populations to integrate into high-tech companies is key to social mobility. As the high-tech industry is a leader in innovation in the Israeli economy, we believe that increasing diversity in high-tech will bring new employment opportunities to underprivileged populations both inside and outside the high-tech industry, and equal employment opportunities that may lead to socio-economic growth in many sectors in Israel.

“At a time when conflict and distrust are increasing, it is even more important to create an arena for tolerance, equality and hope. The Israel Diversity Initiative is intended to enable the high tech workplace to be that place of positive interaction – where we all can work and build great companies and this country together.
Join our efforts to create a more inclusive, tolerant and diverse tech ecosystem!”

Alan Feld, Founder and Managing Partner, Vintage Investment Partners, and Founder of of Power in Diversity

Talking about belonging

In the midst of a discourse about a crisis and a stop to recalculate a route, we set out to talk to the facts and workers who are breaking all the stigmas and proving that it is possible otherwise. How advanced is high-tech employment in this regard, what can be learned from companies including the value of a diverse company, what tips do they have for those who are not there.

“Diversity gives startups access to good ideas, fresh perspectives, and real experience they could be lacking otherwise. It can also attract investors and customers who value businesses run by diverse teams.”

Eynat Guez

Co-Founder and CEO at Papaya Global

For me, diversity is a given. We must make sure our workplaces reflect the world around us, including women, men, people with disabilities, and people who need the opportunity to take off. In order to reach the level of the obvious, we have to work on changing and creating this reality.”

Eido Gal

CEO at Riskified

“Diversity isn’t just about race and gender. It’s also about life experience and cultural insight. For startups, creating geographic and cultural diversity can be a competitive advantage.”

Amit Bendov

CEO & Co-Founder at Gong

“Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s..”
