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:

  • How women can be confident without apology
  • How we can be leaders without belittling
  • How we can brag about our accomplishments without ego
  • How we can push limits and erase boundaries

    There are five short interviews in today’s episode:
  • Crosby Cromwell: Director of External Affairs and Partnerships at IWF
  • Dr. Mina Teicher: Professor of Mathematics and Neural Computation, ex-Chief Scientist of Israel
  • Dr. Cady Coleman: NASA Astronaut
  • Claudia Patton: Chief Talent Officer at Edelman
  • Asma Chaabi: Moroccan Parliamentarian, first Moroccan female mayor, artist
  • Mich Atagana: Head of Communications and Public Affairs for Google South Africa
  • Ziva Patir: Previously the Director General of the Standards Institution of Israel, currently co-CEO at Patir Consultants

    The podcast is very different this week to its usual format. I look forward to hearing your feedback. What do you think? Let me know on Facebook or at edie@thestrongwomensclub.com

    Have a great day and stay strong!

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.

All about mental toughness today!

Continuing with my series on Strong Women in Israel, Yael Arad is on the show!
Israel’s first olympic medalist, Yael talks about how mental resilience helped her break through the 7th-place barrier and go on to win a silver medal at the Barcelona olympics in judo and then the gold medal at the European Championships the year after that, as well as many other medals in her long judo career.

We also talk about mental toughness in general, elaborating on these points:
Make connections
Take care of yourself
Accept that change is part of living
Move towards your goals
Take decisive actions
