The International Women’s Forum Cornerstone Conference was in Tel-Aviv this week, May 2016. As a member of the media, I was able to listen to lectures, interview prominent women, soak up the positive energy that was buzzing throughout and talk to the organizers and one of the sponsors.
IWF understands the power of the group, the mentoring and teaching.
One of its main missions is to cultivate young women leaders, as well as exchange ideas, learn and inspire and build leadership.
In this episode you will hear:
Ibtisam Erekat and Ruth Ebenstein met at a support group for Muslim, Jewish and Christian women with breast cancer. They became best friends despite both being devoutly religious and living on opposite sides of the green line. Their story is unusual and inspiring. If you want to learn more about them or have them speak at your event or school, you can find them at www.laughthroughbreastcancer.com.
When we are open to meeting people who we might not understand, who are different to us, who we don't necessarily agree with politically but have so much in common with it cannot be ignored, then we are open to learning and listening, and our hearts can open where our heads may be shut off.
I hope you enjoy this interview, it's important.
